Now, there have been plenty of recalls lately, Jeep recalling their Wranglers, Mistubishi recalling some Lancers, and Toyota soon to recall several of their models. Now there’s another one, but this one is quite peculiar: the Ferrari F355.
The affected cars are 1995-1996 Ferrari F355s and F355 F1s. To make this recall even less conventional, the issue was supposed to be fixed back in 1997, when Ferrari had a recall for a fuel leak/fire problem, but the NHTSA says “Independent automobile repair facilities may have improperly installed certain screw clamps that are located in close proximity to the fuel lines and that fasten the water sleeve to the thermostat connection. The improper installation of these screw clamps may damage the fuel supply pipes.” This could result in fuel leaking into the engine compartment, and causing smoke, or in the worst case, fire.
The NHTSA says that 2,356 F355s are affected. For the new fix, Ferrari install fuel divider blocks to prevent fuel leakage.
If you happen to own a F355 or F355 F1, then contact your local Ferrari dealership, or you can contact Ferrari directly at (201) 816-2600, and arrange to get the fix installed as soon as possible. Try not to use your car until the fix is installed. For those F355 owners who aren’t reading this (Probably all of them), Ferrari will begin notifying owners in December.
