Maserati North America is issuing out a recall for 2005-2008 Quattroporte, 2008 Granturismo, and 2008 Alfa Romeo 8C vehicles for a possible rear tie rod failure.

According to the Italian automaker, the affected models were manufactured with rear tie rod assemblies that may not have sufficient anti-corrosion material applied, potentially causing them to weaken and fail over time. Failure of the tie rods can result in loss of control and an increased risk of crashing.

Maserati will begin notifying affected owners so that the automaker can replace the tie rod assemblies. The recall is expected to begin by the end of June 2013.

A total number of 7,438 vehicles are potentially affected.
