Maserati is recalling its new Quattroporte sedan.
Maserati is recalling its all-new 2014 Quattroporte GTS sedan over an electrical wiring defect.
Maserati has announced that it is recalling a small number of its 2014 Quattroporte GTS due to a potential problem with the sedan's wiring harness. According to the Italian automaker, some Quattroporte GTS models may have shipped with an improper connection in the alternator-starter motor wiring harness.
That lose crimp could cause the battery cable to short, which could lead to overheating, melting and possibly even a vehicle fire. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration also warns that a short could cause the vehicle to stall, increasingly the likelihood of a crash.
Just 63 vehicles are covered by the recall.
Maserati will remedy the problem by replacing the alternator-starter motor wiring harness. The procedure is expected to take about 3 hours.
No accidents or injuries have been linked to the recall.
