Ferrari is recalling certain 458 Italia and California models around the world due to a problem with the crankshaft. Roughly 13,000 examples of these cars are currently roaming the streets, and 206 are affected by this problem.

According to Autocar, the recall has been issued due to an incorrect finish on the vehicles' crankshafts. The British magazine states that the problem "causes unwanted vibrations which can damage the engine if it is not changed."

"We are writing to all clients affected now, asking them to return the car to a dealer for the work to be done," a Ferrari spokesperson told Autocar.

In the United States, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has yet to issue a formal recall notice about the affected vehicles.

      I have never been a fan of the 458. I have always loved the F430.

      What is the fix for this? Replacement of crankshafts at the dealer? I'd demand a new engine.

        Tried that on the BMW S54 3.2L 333 hp engines on the M3. Didn't work. They replaced the connecting rod bearings TWICE under warranty.

      Certain? Which means there are significant changes to the car YET being branded the same? WTF.
