Maserati Quattroporte: 718 Cars Recalled Due To ABS/ASR Problem
It happens to the noblest of the noblest; the Modenese sports car maker is recalling 718 MY 2007 Quattroporte vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions in the States due to a defect in the antilock brake/anti-skid system (ABS/ASR) electronic control unit (ECU) software. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the defect may prevent the system from functioning properly thus resulting to loss of certain enhanced stability and braking control during some high speed maneuvers and high speed braking. The recall is expected to begin during August 2007 with the ABS/ASR ECU unit being replaced in all vehicles free of charge.
