Maserati recalls Quattroporte because traction control may ‘trip out’Enlarge Photo
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.
