MASERATI SAFETY RECALL NOTIFICATION

PERFORM THE PROCEDURE OUTLINED IN THIS TECHNICAL BULLETIN ON ALL AFFECTED VEHICLES BEFORE CUSTOMER DELIVERY OR THE NEXT TIME THE CAR IS IN THE SHOP FOR MAINTENANCE OR REPAIRS.

Maserati S.p.A. and Maserati North America, Inc. (MNA), have decided that a defect that relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 2021 Model Year (MY) Maserati Quattroporte and Ghibli vehicles, 2021 MY and 2022 MY Levante vehicles and 2022 MY MC20 vehicles.

 

Description of Vehicle Safety Recall #442

Maserati S.p.A. and MNA have determined that the above-described vehicles may contain a safety defect in the fuel line sensor housing that may crack and leak fuel. The fuel line sensor fuel leak may cause fuel starvation of the engine. In rare circumstances, if the leaked fuel comes in contact with an ignition source, a fire could occur. Fuel starvation may result in an unexpected loss of motive power, which can cause a vehicle crash without prior warning. A vehicle fire can result in increased risk of occupant injury and/or injury to persons outside the vehicle, as well as property damage.

The remedy is to introduce a specific procedure to replace the fuel line sensor housing.

 

This repair procedure will be performed free of charge to the vehicle owner.
