Potential Number of Units Affected: 85
All Products Associated with this Recall
2014 – 2015
Manufacturer: Ferrari North America, Inc.
Ferrari North America, Inc. (FNA) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 LaFerrari vehicles manufactured May 15, 2014, to March 4, 2015. The affected vehicles have L32 seats as standard equipment for the passenger seat and as optional equipment for the driver seat. In a crash, the headrests of L32 seats may not absorb the required amount of energy, and thus, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 202a, “Head Restraints.”
Headrests that do not absorb the required amount of energy can increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
FNA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the headrests, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in June 2015. Owners may contact Ferrari customer service at 1-866-551-2828. Ferrari’s number for this recall is 55.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
