Maserati Ghibli 2014 (36)

H Maserati ανακοίνωσε ότι ανακαλεί στην Αμερική 28.235 Quattroporte και Ghibli, παραγωγής από τη 1η Φεβρουαρίου 2013 μέχρι τη 30ή Νοεμβρίου του 2015, εξαιτίας ενός κινδύνου που θέτει το πατάκι του οδηγού, το οποίο μπορεί να αποσπασθεί και να κολλήσει στο γκάζι, προκαλώντας ακούσια επιτάχυνση.

Η εταιρία θα αντικαταστήσει το πατάκι, πιθανώς και το πεντάλ του γκαζιού, και αυτή είναι η δεύτερη ανάκληση μετά τις 984 Quattroporte του περασμένου Οκτωβρίου.

RECALL Subject : Floor Mat Interference with Accelerator Pedal Report Receipt Date: MAR 01, 2016 NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V122000 Component(s): VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL Potential Number of Units Affected: 28,235 Manufacturer: Maserati North America, Inc.

SUMMARY: Maserati North America, Inc. (Maserati) is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 Quattroporte and Ghibli vehicles manufactured February 1, 2013, to November 30, 2015. In the affected vehicles, the driver-side floor mat anchor may break allowing the floor mat to move and get trapped between the accelerator pedal and the vehicle carpet.

CONSEQUENCE: If the floor mat moves and becomes trapped between the accelerator and the vehicle carpet, it may result in very high vehicle speeds, which could cause a crash, serious injury or death.

REMEDY: Maserati will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver-side floor mat and possibly the accelerator pedal cover, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 29, 2016. Owners may contact Maserati customer service at 1-201-816-2600. Maserati’s number for this recall is 301. Note: These vehicles are equipped with a brake override system. In the event a pedal is trapped, pushing on the brake pedal will brake the vehicle and enable the driver to slow and stop and turn off the vehicle.

NOTES: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
