The nation’s car safety watchdog notes that “in some circumstances, the driver, occupants or bystanders may be warned by fuel odor or fuel droplets or puddling under the vehicle”.

The Ghibli and Quattroporte included in this recall were assembled between July 18, 2013 and May 14, 2015, and from April 30, 2013 until May 14, 2015, respectively.

The brand, which is part of the FCA Group, will begin notifying dealers and owners on January 15, 2019. Subsequently to scheduling an appointment with an authorized dealer, technicians will inspect the vehicles and replace the fuel line assemblies free of charge.

Maserati had to call back the Ghibli and Quattroporte over a similar issue in 2017, although those vehicles were from a different batch, and their first-ever SUV, the Levante, due to a transmission issue.
