Oct. 25, 2022—Recently, Ferrari announced a recall of over 23,000 vehicles, and now there is a a new lawsuit related to recall.
According to Top Class Actions, the major Ferrari recall revolves around potential brake fluid leaks. Nearly every car that Ferrari has made since 2005 is involved in this recall.
A new lawsuit claims that the automaker failed to keep drivers informed of the defect in certain vehicle models. Ferrari vehicles are known for operating at high speeds, which makes the brake feature especially imperative.
The lead plaintiff claims that he lost braking power while driving at a slow speed. He was able to successfully exit his vehicle before it rolled into a 20-foot-deep pond behind his home, where the vehicle ultimately sank. Upon purchasing a second Ferrari vehicle, the lead plaintiff claims that those brakes also failed.
The plaintiff claims that Ferrari has known about this brake fluid leak defect since 2015. The Ferrari recall was originally announced in October 2021, followed by a recent expansion in July 2022. For more information and for a full list of the vehicles involved, visit the Top Class Actions website.
