Recall roundup: Maserati vehicles in Australia image

The Italian based automaker Maserati has recently announced a recall for several models in Australia, because of a problem with the rear suspension system.

According to the Australia Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), a total of 425 units of the Maserati Quattroporte sedans and GranTurismo coupes will be affected by this recall in Australia, and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of a problem with the rear suspension.

“If the threaded part of the tie-rods corrodes, proper toe-in adjustment could be difficult to achieve, which may compromise steering and handling of the vehicle”, said the ACCC.

From the 425 units of the two Maserati vehicles, 340 are Quattroportes and 85 GranTurismos, with all of them being valued at 109.5 million AUD, combined. Owners of these cars will be contacted directly and the suspect parts will be replaced, free of charge, where required. The fix should take approximately three hours. This recall is part of the one announced back in May in the United States, for the Quattroporte, GranTurismo and Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione, for a similar rear tie-rod fault.
