Maserati has issued a recall on certain versions of its GranTurismo flagship and Quattroporte luxury sedan due to a potential fault with the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) fitted to the cars.

The recall affects all 2012 GranTurismo coupes and GranTurismo Convertibles, including the high-performance MC variant, as well as all 2012 Quattroporte sedans.

In total, some 485 vehicles are affected by the latest recall in the U.S.

According to the automaker, the TPMS fitted to the cars may malfunction due to a software error, preventing the driver from being notified of a low tire pressure situation.

Should the vehicle have low tire pressure and the driver continues, the tire may fail, increasing the likelihood of a crash.

Owners of the affected vehicles will be contacted by Maserati soon and will be requested to take their vehicles to their nearest Maserati dealership, which will replace the faulty TPMS free of charge. For further information you can contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 1-888-327-4236 (reference recall campaign number 12V489000) or Maserati at 1-201-816-2600.
