50,000 Cars Recalled By Maserati
Maserati is clearly not a stranger to recall programs as it now once again recalls some of its vehicles. Apparently, some of the company's units have posed fire hazards which are why recalls have been initiated. Take note that two different recall programs are initiated by Maserati as the fire hazards are posed by two different car parts. The first one affects about 39,000 2014-2017 Quattroporte and Ghibli sedans, alongside the 2017 Levante SUV. These cars have manufacturing dates between June 1, 2013, to December 31, 2016. The second recall affects about 11,000 2014-2015 Quattroporte and Ghibli sedans.
Maserati First Recall: Seat Wiring Harness Layout
The first Maserati recall indicated here is caused by wrong seat wiring harness layout. This can lead to different possible scenarios with the ultimate one being fire-related. With that said, Maserati will be notifying owners of affected vehicles through first class emails about the unit's recall, as per CNET. This recall program is expected to start next month, March 21. Fixing the affected vehicles should involve intense inspections and appropriate replacements of necessary parts.
Maserati Second Recall: Weeping Fuel Lines
In the second recall, the issue is blamed on the fuel lines. With that, Maserati is actually blaming its fuel line supplier for this. Obviously, this is a fire hazard that Maserati has to fix to avoid further problems. The second Maserati recall will be starting by the end of February. Owners of affected vehicles can take their cars to the dealer to have their affected fuel lines replaced for free.
As per Bloomberg, this is just some of Maserati's major recalls in the past year. It was said that in May, the automaker has also recalled about 20,000 2013 and 2015 Quattroporte and Ghibli models in China. The issue in this said recall is associated with the vehicle's rear wheel. Two months prior to this, about 28,000 cars were also recalled in the US due to unstable floor mats that could end up between the carpet and the accelerator pedal.
