Maserati Recalling Nearly 40,000 Vehicles on Risk of Fires

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

Adjusting the front seats could potentially lead to electrical shorts and fires in those vehicles from model years 2014 through 2017, according to documents filed with the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The company is also recalling 10,879 Quattroporte and Ghibli vehicles for the 2014 and 2015 model years that may have fuel-line leaks.

The most recent models of the vehicles have suggested retail prices ranging from $71,600 to $145,500.

Calls and emails to Maserati spokesmen weren’t immediately returned outside of normal business hours.
