Maserati recalls another 39,000 cars

Maserati in North America is recalling at least 39,381 Quattroporte, Ghibli and Levante vehicles after discovering two very serious defects that could lead to fires.

It has been discovered that when adjusting the front seats, it could potentially lead to an electrical short which could ignite a fire in the affected vehicle.

According to documents filed with the US national highway traffic safety administration, the recall affects three models between the years 2014 through 2017.

The company is also recalling 10,879 Quattroporte and Ghibli vehicles for years 2014 and 2015 that potentially have fuel-line leaks.

The retail price of the vehicle's range from US$71,600 to $145,500.

This is the third major recall in the past year for Maserati, which is owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.

Back in May, the luxury car maker recalled almost 20,000 Quattroporte and Ghibli models from China produced between 2013 and 2015 due to a problem that could affect the rear wheel.

Two months earlier, it recalled 28,235 vehicles in the United States for floor mats that could move and become caught between accelerator pedal and vehicle carpet.

It hasn’t been a good couple of years for Maserati.
