The brake fluid reservoir cap may not vent properly and could create a vacuum in the reservoir, causing brake fluid to leak. Leaking brake fluid may lead to a partial or total loss of brake function, increasing the risk of a crash.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on September 24, 2022. Owners may contact Ferrari customer service at 201-816-2668 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will replace the brake fluid reservoir cap and update the software to provide a new warning message for low brake fluid.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
