Ferrari recalls 23,555 cars from MY2005 over possible brake failure

(NEXSTAR) – Sorry, Ferrari owners.

Ferrari North America, Inc. is recalling tens of thousands of luxury vehicles due to a potentially defective brake fluid reservoir cap, which may contribute to loss of brake function and increase the risk of a crash.

The recall, announced in late July, affects 23,555 possible cars across 19 different models, including units from model years dating back to 2005. According to a recall report, only around 1% of vehicles are estimated to contain the defect.

“The brake fluid reservoir cap may not be venting properly, creating a vacuum inside the brake fluid reservoir and causing a brake fluid leak which may result in partial or complete loss of brake function” , reads a summary of the issue posted to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA).

A complete list of recalled models, along with the affected model years, is listed below.
