Nationwide Ferrari 458 Recall
Ferrari is recalling 1,248 copies of the 458 Italia to replace an adhesive prone to catching fire. The adhesive is used in the wheel-arch assemblies. If it overheats, it can ignite.
“In rare instances the heat shield could become deformed, bringing it too close to the exhaust system and igniting,” a Ferrari spokesperson said.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released a statement saying Ferrari’s Italian headquarters had told its North American division about the recall. NHTSA warned that if the adhesive ignites it could “render the vehicle inoperable and possibly result in a crash.”
The NHTSA statement said 303 vehicles are being recalled, and owners could be eligible for reimbursement for if they spent money on repairs related to the problem before the recall was announced.
