Fer­rari re­calls cars for air bags

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - BUSINESS - THE AS­SO­CI­ATED PRESS

Fer­rari is re­call­ing 814 sports cars in the U.S. to fix prob­lems with driver's air bags made by Ja­panese parts sup­plier Takata Corp.

The Ital­ian au­tomaker says that due to an assem­bly prob­lem, air bags may in­flate with the wrong ori­en­ta­tion, in­creas­ing the risk of in­jury in a crash.

Af­fected are cer­tain 2015 model year 458 Italia, 458 Spi­der, 458 Speciale, 458 Speciale A, the Cal­i­for­nia T, FF, F12 Ber­linetta, and LaFer­rari mod­els. Fer­rari says in doc­u­ments it was told of the prob­lem by Takata in June.

Deal­ers will re­place the air bag mod­ule at no cost to own­ers start­ing July 30.
