Potential Oil Leak/Fire in 614 Ferrari Supercars
Owners of more than 600 Ferrari SF90 Stradale and SF90 Spider hybrid electric vehicles are urged not to drive the supercars due to a faulty oil delivery pipe that could cause a fire.
The recall includes 614 SF90 vehicles rom the 2022 to 2024 model years that were built between November 7, 2022, and September 19, 2023.
Both Ferrari and the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) report the supercars are equipped with a turbocharger oil delivery pipe that may have been improperly assembled.
Specifically, the oil delivery pipes installed on the SF90 is a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 and some were manufactured with a notch or they are not made with the correct thickness. The defect could result in an oil leak that in turn could cause a fire. The problem was discovered in July during a pre-production review of the new vehicles. However, Ferrari is not aware of any fires, leaks, deaths, or injuries from the defect.
The affected vehicles have an increased fire risk if they experience an oil leak, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Ferrari plans a total of 614 vehicles because the turbocharger oil delivery pipe may have been improperly assembled. Vehicles are at a greater risk of an oil leak and potential fire if the oil delivery pipe was not assembled correctly, according to a NHTSA report.
Owners of these vehicles should not to drive their cars unless the dealership has replaced the turbocharger oil delivery pipes.
Ferrari intends to send out a letter to owners of these vehicles on Dec. 16th, but consumers may also call Ferrari at 1-201-816-2668 for more details on the recall number is RC 86.
