This is part of Ferrari’s safety recall in the US for the same reasons.
Due to probable brake issues, Ferrari is recalling its Type F142 and Type F142M sports vehicles in China. On Friday, local time, the State Administration for Market Regulation in the Asian country issued the recall. However, the recall will commence on May 30, 2022. The reason for the delay was kept under wraps.
The following supercars are included in the recall, according to China’s market regulators: 458 Italia, 458 Speciale, 458 Speciale A, 458 Spider, 488 GTB, and 488 Spider. Between March 2010 and March 2019, the vulnerable models were imported.
The statement in China is part of a worldwide recall that began last year in the United States. Around 9,985 units were affected by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Recall Campaign Number 21V833000, which was issued on October 23, 2021, with the braking system potentially leaking brake fluid, resulting in a loss of braking capabilities.
Ferrari’s supplier, Bosch, has looked at the matter. The malfunctioning brake is caused by a reservoir fluid lid that does not adequately vent, according to the Italian manufacturer. As a result, a vacuum may form inside the brake fluid reservoir, which can lead to brake fluid leakage.

“The safety and wellbeing of our clients is our priority. We operate according to stringent safety and security guidelines to ensure the right systems and procedures are in place at all times,” Ferrari said in a statement.
Ferrari owners in the United States should have received notice by now, but we can’t say the same for Chinese buyers. Although new parts are likely to be required, the prior NHTSA campaign did not reveal any remedial action for the problem.
In any case, if you feel that your Ferrari is affected by the recall, you should contact your dealer. After all, brakes are one of the most critical components of an automobile, especially one as powerful as a Ferrari.
