Laferrari recalled

Ferrari has issued a voluntary recall for its super exclusive hypercar. This is the second time the car has been recalled.

Eighty five units of LaFerrari have been recalled due to two possible faulty parts. First recall involves faulty headrests mounted on the L32 large size seats which, according to the company, may not absorb required amount of energy in case of a crash. This may lead to failure to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard in the US.

Recall involves faulty head restraints and tyre pressure monitoring system.

Second recall involves the hypercar’s tyre pressure monitoring system with doesn’t display the appropriate message in case of a puncture. In seems, the current system displays the message as “Low Tire Pressure-Max speed 50 mph” instead of intended message “Low Tire Pressure-Do not proceed”. So the current system encourages the driver to keep driving rather than prompt him/her to pull over in case of a flat tyre.
