Power Train Problems: Certain 2017 Quattroporte and Ghibli vehicles manufactured July 1, 2016, to October 12, 2016, may have been built with a rear differential pinion nut that was not torqued to the proper specifications. A loose pinion gear could bind, possibly resulting in the rear wheels locking up while driving. Maserati’s number for this recall is 328 and the NHTSA campaign number is 16V-856.
Defective Tires: Certain 2016-2017 Ghibli and 2017 Quattroporte vehicles, manufactured February 29, 2016 to October 29, 2016 are equipped with Pirelli P Zero All Season tires, size 275/40R19 101W, that may develop cracks and leaks in their lower sidewall. A loss of air may result in tire failure and loss of vehicle control. Maserati’s number for this recall is 324 and the NHTSA campaign number is 16V-840.
Inoperable Back-Up Cameras: Certain 2017 Quattroporte, Ghible, and Levante vehicles manufactured July 1, 2016 to November 14, 2016 were built with a software problem within the entertainment telematics module (ETM). When subjected to temperatures below 32 degrees F, the ETM may place itself into a protection mode, disabling the rear view (back-up) camera. Maserati’s number for this recall is 327 and the NHTSA campaign number is 16V-839.
