Ferrari has issued a recall for its 458 Italia due to five confirmed reports of spontaneous fires. 1,248 Ferrari 458 Italias have been recalled worldwide.
The fires have been attributed to glue in the wheel arch lining and heat shield that can melt and deform under high pressures. Ferrari has informed its owners and offered to fix the problem by securing the wheel arch liner with bolts and screws instead of glue. Needless to say, all future 458 models will be built this way.
The five reported Ferraris that have been destroyed by the fires will be replaced at no cost to the owner. I should hope so!
