Ferrari will begin to notify owners by mail about the issue on September 24, 2022. To fix the issue, Ferrari will ask customers to visit a dealer. A service technician will replace the brake fluid reservoir cap and update the vehicle’s low brake fluid warning message. This will be a free fix.

Ferrari owners should keep a watch out for the recall letter in the mail because brakes are essential to vehicle safety. In the interim, it probably wouldn’t hurt to check the fluid level.
