Ferrari’s California T Convertibles Recalled
Ferrari North America Inc, a subsidiary of Ferrari NV, has issued a recall for its 2016 California T convertible vehicles due to the risk of leakage of fuel in the engine compartment. The recalled vehicles were manufactured during the period of September 8, 2015 to November 11, 2015. The convertibles are likely to have problems with the connectivity of the low-pressure fuel line.
The U.S. National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a division of the DOT, reported that these convertibles possibly have improper connectivity between low-pressure fuel line and the fuel-pump feed pipe. This generates the threat for fire. The luxury car manufacturer has however, transferred the responsibility for the problem on to a supplier, which produced a defected part. This was revealed by a report submitted to the NHTSA by Ferrari.
According to Car Guide, the base price of the model is $231,606, with a list price of around $167,000. Ferrari had sent notices to discontinue the sale of the model to it’s over 50 dealerships from Beverly Hills, California, to Philadelphia on November 23, 2015. The recall for the model was initiated on December 14, 2015. The recall will involve 185 units of the model. Ferrari has reported that the low-pressure fuel assembly will be replaced by the dealers without any cost.
This recalled follows the recent recall of 800 cars by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV-owned Ferrari in the United States. The recall in summer was associated with an issue with the automaker’s Takata airbags.

The year 2015 is not ending on a great note for Ferrari. On Friday, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration stated that some of the Ferrari models of 2016 California T have to be recalled.
bloomberg report said, Ferrari North America Inc. recalled the 2016 California T convertibles it made over a two-month period this year because of the risk of fuel leaks.
The California Ts produced between Sept. 8 and Nov. 11 may have a low-pressure fuel line that doesn’t connect properly to the fuel-pump feed pipe, creating a fire risk, the U.S. National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration said in an advisory on its website today. Ferrari, in documents submitted to NHTSA, blamed a manufacturing defect in a part made by a supplier.
According to the messenger-inquirer, Ferrari is recalling some California T vehicles because of the risk of fire from a fuel leak. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says up to 185 vehicles have a low-pressure fuel line that may not connect properly to the fuel pump's feed pipe. That bad connection increases the risk of a fuel leak in the engine compartment, in turn increasing the risk of a fire.
