Two defects that could lead to fires are prompting Maserati to recall at least 39,381 vehicles. They include Quattroporte, Ghibli, and Levante models from the 2014-2017 years.
Issue #1: One defect involves an electrical short involving the front seats. If you adjust the seats it could cause a short and subsequent fire.
Issue #2: The company is also recalling 10,879 Quattroporte and Ghibli vehicles for the 2014 and 2015 model years that may have fuel-line leaks.
Maserati, which is owned by Fiat Chrysler, has already had several other recalls in the past year. It recalled 20,000 Quattroporte and Ghibli models in China last May. It was over an issue that could affect the rear wheel. Two months earlier, it recalled 28,235 of U.S models for floor mats that could move and become caught between accelerator pedal and vehicle carpet.
