Dear FCA Members,

Our friends at Ferrari North America have asked us to send out this notice as a reminder to get your airbags replaced.  Below you will find a list of the affected cars along with what you need to do to have them corrected.  In the past, replacements were not readily available but I have been assured that they have stock and they are ready to replace them for you.  Details on how you can get this corrected are listed below.

The passenger side front airbag could explode in vehicles involved in an incident in which the frontal airbags deploy. Sharp metal fragments may pass through the airbag striking vehicle passengers, leading to serious injury or death.

Replacement airbags are now available. Please contact your nearest Authorized Ferrari Dealer to make an appointment to have the FREE recall repair performed on your vehicle.  (In certain cases, you may receive an additional recall notice, even though you have had your car repaired.  If you get such a notice, please contact your local authorized Ferrari dealer.)

Please take the time to see if your vehicle is subject to this recall by immediately checking the VIN number of your vehicle using one of the following steps:
