Maserati North America has announced a recall of 28,235 vehicles due a floor mat problem that interferes with the vehicle’s gas pedal, according to a report by the National Highway Transportation Administration (NHTSA).
At least four people reported a problem with the anchor holding the floor mats in place on newer model Maserati vehicles. The anchor’s failure causes the mats to come loose causing them to jam under the accelerator. Fortunately, there have been no reported injuries or deaths as a result of this.
The problem has been identified in the 2014 to 2016 Quattroporte and Ghibli models manufactured between February 1, 2013, and November 30, 2015.
“This is certainly a safety risk for drivers of these vehicles, but one that can also be easily fixed,” said Attorney James Johnson. “I’m glad that no one has been hurt so far.”
Maserati had previously recalled 984 of the 2014 Quattroporte GTS V8 vehicles in October after it was learned there was a fire risk.
