A representative of the Italian supercar company said that Ferrari has not found the root of the brake fluid leak problem, as well as the exact number of affected cars. The company intends to issue a temporary notice to all 458 and 488 owners to warn and guide to pull to the curb as soon as the warning light appears on the dashboard. The owner then contacts Ferrari customer service for assistance.

According to Ferrari’s notice sent to the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the problem is only with the brake assist cluster, but the Italian supercar company is not sure why the brake fluid is leaking. Therefore, the company announced to recall vehicles with brake fluid loss warning to find the cause.

After the 458 and 488 stopped production, the next Ferrari models did not use the brake boosters used for these two models, the company representative added.
