Assembly Process Error Triggers Recall Announcement from Maserati
About 26,500 vehicles are potentially affected by this issue
Maserati North America has announced a recall for vehicles due to a manufacturing error.
The automaker is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 Quattroporte and Ghibli vehicles. During the assembly process, the rear tie-rod to hub assembly attaching bolt may not have been properly tightened.
An improperly tightened rear tie-rod to hub carrier assembly attaching bolt may allow the tie-rod to separate, resulting in a loss of control, increasing the risk of a crash.
About 26,500 vehicles are included in the manufacturer's recall.
Maserati will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the rear tie-rods to hub carrier assembly attaching bolts to verify that they are properly tightened, replacing as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on July 1, 2016.
Owners with questions about this recall can contact Maserati customer service at (201) 510-2369.
