Toronto, Ontario – A brake failure has been identified in Ferrari vehicles built since 2005, leading to over 23,000 Ferraris being recalled by the NHTSA.
“These vehicles are equipped with a braking system that could potentially leak brake fluid, which may lead to partial or total loss of braking capability,” details the NHTSA recall. “Upon total loss of brake fluid, the vehicle would lose braking capability, which may result in injury or death to vehicle occupants.”
Thankfully, only one percent of these Ferraris are suspected to have this fatal defect. Barring other errors, safety notifications such as warning lights and buzzers should alert drivers when fluid levels drop to 50 percent of the reservoir’s maximum level.
