Recall Alert: 2012 Maserati GranTurismo and Quattroporte


(Cars.com)

Maserati is recalling 485 model-year 2012 versions of the GranTurismo and Quattroporte due to problems with the tire pressure monitoring system, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In the affected vehicles, a software error prevents the system from alerting the driver when it detects low pressure. Driving on a tire with low pressure increases the risk a crash.

Maserati will notify owners starting in early November, and dealers will replace the tire pressure monitoring system for free. Owners can call Maserati at 201-816- 2600 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
