Ferrari recalls F430 Spider

Ferrari F430 Spider fq

Yesterday Ferrari issued a recall for 1,950 of its 2005-2007 F430 Spiders involving the car’s automatic convertible top. The problem arose from the hydraulic hoses that operate the top, which could form hairline cracks due to heat from the engine.

As a result, the hoses could leak fluid into the engine bay and possibly create smoke or even start a fire. To remedy the situation, Ferrari dealers will install an insulated heat shield that will protect the hoses from heat in the engine bay.

Any New Zealand customers with a F430 Spider should wait to be advised about the recalls from their Ferrari dealer.
