A recall affects Ferrari California and 458 models

Ferrari California and 458 models are objects of a recall. To be more precise, out of 13.000, 206 units will be checked and fixed if necessary. It seems that the machine which does a finishing process on crankshafts was not calibrated correctly causing tolerance specifications to be far out, or at least this is what the carmaker declared. The engine can fail because there might be a very powerful vibration. In the UK 10 California units and 6 458s are affected. Ferrari will contact each and every owner to get their cars fixed. Almost two years ago, back in 2010, Ferrari also recalled 1.248 F458 cars because around 12 vehicles caught fire. The reason was different.
