Italy’s Ferrari and Fiat have recalled more than 30 million cars due to a recall
- by admin
Italian media reported that Fiat and Ferrari have recalled 30 million vehicles from their sales to consumers because of a recall involving faulty brakes.
The Italian news agency ANSA said the cars were found to have an issue with the front brake cable.
ANSA also said that the problem may be connected to a brake system upgrade in some models.
The company said it will recall the vehicles and issue a refund.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO Sergio Marchionne tweeted that the company was “committed to fully supporting the owners and the team” of the recall.
ANS reported that the brake problems are linked to an upgrade in 2018 models that was designed to make the braking system more robust.
The agency said the upgrade is believed to have been made by Fiat to improve the brake systems reliability, but some affected vehicles are still being tested.
In a statement, Marchionnne said the company is “compelled to take every possible action to avoid a serious impact to the future of our brand and the sport.”
The Italian-American company, which also owns Fiat, has a long history of safety concerns and recalls in recent years.
The automaker also recalled about 50,000 vehicles in 2015 and another 75,000 in 2017 over brake failures.
The firm also recalled nearly 4 million vehicles in 2014 after a fire at its Fiat Chrysler assembly plant.
