Maserati Recalling MY 2008 GranTurismo
Well that was fast; Maserati announced its first recall on the MY 2008 GranTurismo. In all, 56 vehicles equipped with the advanced passenger seat air bag weight sensor system will be recalled by the Italian carmaker due to a malfunction in the supplemental restraint system (SRS) electronic control unit (ECU) software when the battery is not fully charged. In the event of a crash, the passenger side air bag and passenger seat belt pre-tensioner may not deploy increasing the risk of injuries. Maserati dealers will replace the SRS ECU units as necessary. The recall is expected to begin this month (January 2008).
