2013-Maserati-Quattroporte

Exotic Italian car builder Maserati is calling back 63 of its new Quattroporte sedans in the U.S.

Thee recall affects the 2014 Quattroporte GTS V8 that have “an improper Y-connection crimp in the alternator-starter motor wiring harness,” NHTSA documents show.

The problem could cause an electrical short leading to a fire as well as the cars stalling. Maserati will fix the problem through its dealer network and will carry out the repairs free of charge to vehicle owners. The recall campaign will begin later this month and owners with questions can contact Maserati by calling (201) 816-2600.

So far, the company says there haven’t been any problems reported with vehicles in the U.S., but the company is launching the recall campaign as a precaution. There are 63 units affected.
