Ferrari North America is recalling 1,507 model year 2012 Ferrari Californias, 458 Italias, 458 Spiders and FFs that have not already had their passenger frontal air bag replaced.

The passenger front airbag modules have inflators that may explode in the event of a crash due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling.

An inflator explosion may result in metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

What to do

Ferrari will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger front airbag assembly with one that uses an alternate inflator, free of charge.

Owners may contact Ferrari customer service at 1-201-816-2668. Ferrari's number for this recall is 61.
