Ferrari’s North American division has announced plans to recall a total of 185 California T units to solve a potential fuel leak problem.

A worrying amount of Ferraris have gone up in flames in recent years and now it seems the turbocharged California is also vulnerable. That is why the Maranello-based marque has decided to issue a recall concerning 185 units from the 2016 model year in United States to handle a possible fuel leak hazard. The recall for Ferrari's entry-level model kicked off on December 14 and affects cars that were made between September 8 and November 11 this year.

According to the National Highway and Traffic Administration (NHTSA), the increased risk of a fire is due to a manufacturing defect of a component that came from a supplier. On November 23, Ferrari released a stop sale notice to its dealers in North America and all the affected cars will get the necessary new component. Dealers will be in charge of fixing the problem on those California T units, free of charge.

This latest announcement comes after the summer when Ferrari recalled up to 800 vehicles in the United States to solve a problem related to the Takata airbags that have affected a multitude of models from all over the world.
