Among the 74 recalls the NHTSA has announced this March comes news of the following:

Maserati North America, Inc. (“Maserati”) has recalled an estimated 9,044 model year 2017 Quattroporte vehicles equipped with V6 engines and Maserati Ghibli vehicles. Due to an engine software problem, at slow speeds such as stop-and-go traffic, the transmission may unexpectedly shift into NEUTRAL or PARK or the engine may shut off.

According to the NHTSA, if the transmission shifts into NEUTRAL or PARK unexpectedly, or if the engine shuts down without warning, it can increase the risk of a crash.

Maserati will notify owners, and dealers will re-flash the software for the engine control module, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 3, 2018. Owners may contact Maserati customer service at 1-877-696-2737. Maserati’s number for this recall is 365.
