Looks like the recall bug has impacted the high-end of the automotive segment over the last few weeks. After we reported on Aston Martin and Mercedes issuing recalls, in comes news that Maserati wants to the join party.
The problem in question is related to the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). NHTSA is reporting that in 2012 model cars, all 485 of them, the TPMS system will fail to alert drivers to under-inflated tires. The NHTSA goes on to say that driving on an under-inflated tire increase tire-fail rates and collisions.
We would be just as concerned about potential costs to replace worn tires and the potential for rim damage but if NHTSA wants to bring fiery crashes into the equation who are we to argue.
Maserati should start notifying customers soon with the full recall to take place in November. Owners can then swing by their local Maserati dealer to have a software fix on the system.
