Recall roundup: Maserati Quattroporte image

The Italian based automaker Maserati has recently announced a recall for some of its Quattroporte models, because of a problem with the wiring.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of just 63 units of the Maserati Quattroporte will be affected by this recall across the United States and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the wiring solved. The NHTSA says that not all versions of the Maserati Quattroporte will be affected by this recall but only the Quattroporte GTS and the problem, if ignored, can even lead to a fire.

The Maserati Quattroporte GTS has an improper Y-connection crimp in the alternator starter motor wiring harness and this can cause the positive cable of the battery to short to ground and this can increase the risk of a fire. In some cases, the vehicle can stall. Owners of the Maserati Quattroporte GTS vehicles are currently being notified by the company and the local dealerships will replace the alternator starter wiring harness at no cost for the owners. Additional details on the subject can be learned by calling Maserati at 1-201-816-2600 or the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236.
