Maserati North America Inc. will be issuing two recall notices affecting more than 39,381 vehicles for defects that could potentially produce fires.
According to documents submitted to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the first recall involves 39,381 2014-2017 Ghibli, Levante and Quattroporte models. Making adjustments to the positioning of the front seats in these vehicles may cause the seating wiring harness to rub, potentially resulting in electrical shorts that could increase the risk of a fire.
In the second recall filing, 10,879 2014-2015 Ghibli and Quattroporte models have fuel lines that may experience leaks, heightening the risk of fire if the fuel comes into contact with an ignition source.
Maserati says that it will begin notifying owners of these recalls beginning on February 28 and will replace the seating harness and fuel lines free of charge.
