At Least Unintended Acceleration On A Maserati Sounds Good

Recall

Although like with Toyota, this issue has caused a recall.

You may remember the scandal that result from unintended acceleration problems on Toyotas. The floor mats would get caught under the accelerator, causing it to stick. Now it seems the Italian luxury automaker Maserati is having similar issues. The issue reportedly effects the Ghibli and Quattroporte models. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the driver's side floor mat can become dislodged, get stuck on the accelerator pedal and cause unintended acceleration.

This increases the risk of crash, severe injury or even death (obviously). The affected models are 2014-2016s manufactured between February 1, 2013, and November 30, 2015. Maserati will notify these owners and replace the driver-side floor mat and possibly the accelerator pedal cover as well. These recalls will be performed free of charge beginning on April 29, 2016. This is not the first recall that has been opened for the Ghibli and Quattroporte. Some models were already recalled for a potential fire hazard. For more information on open recalls, call the NHTSA Vehicles Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236.
