Maserati Ghibli, Quattroporte Recalled for Unintended Acceleration Risk

The Maserati Ghibli and Quattroporte models are being recalled for possible unintended acceleration issues.

According to the Italian automaker, a total of 28,235 units are affected by the recall, with the sedans posing a danger because their driver-side floor mat can become dislodged and stuck in the accelerator. “If the floor mat moves and becomes trapped between the accelerator and the vehicle carpet, it may result in very high vehicle speeds, which could cause a crash, serious injury or death,” the recall notice said.
