2007-08-20T23:34:09-07:00 Maserati recalls Quattroporte because traction control may ‘trip out’
Maserati has issued a recall for its Quattroporte saloon because of fears a software glitch could cause the car’s traction and stability control systems to switch off automatically. The only affected model in Maserati’s lineup is the Quattroporte but it concerns both the older Duoselect models as well as the new Automatica.

According to officials, the Maserati Stability Program (MSP) also controls the ABS brakes but these aren’t affected by the glitch. The problem is due to a bug in the MSP’s software management. A spokesman told News reporters the “traction control will trip out” if the battery gets below a certain level.

Owners shouldn’t be worried about their brakes failing or the cars suddenly becoming uncontrollable. If the MSP should cut out, a warning light will appear on the dash and according to officials it’s still safe to continue driving temporarily
