Official: Maserati recalls GranTurismo, Quattroporte for faulty tire pressure monitoring

Filed under: , , , , , ,

As proof that no automaker is immune to the recall bug, Maserati announced a recall for its entire lineup – both the GranTurismo and Quattroporte – due to a software issue with the tire pressure monitoring system. According to the recall notice from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released earlier this month, affected vehicles could have low air pressure in a tire that is not alerted to the driver properly.

Of course, if the car is driven on a tire with low pressure, severe damage could be caused to the presumably very expensive tire, and to fix the problem, Maserati is replacing the TPMS control unit on affected cars. A total of 485 Quattroportes and GranTurismos (including convertible and MC models) are being recalled, but it does not appear there have been any complaints or accidents for this problem. The recall goes into effect next month.

Check out the official notice from NHTSA below.
