  • About 135 GranTurismo to be recalled by Maserati over Door Issue!

The recall is due to faulty heat related door latches in the low volume product.

Maserati issued a recall of its GranTurismo vehicle. A total of 135 GranTurismo vehicles will be recalled. The GranTurismo is a low volume product. The recall was issued due to a fault in the door latches of the car.

According to Maserati, the door handles may not have been properly heat-treated. In simple words, the lack of heat treatment means the door could swing open in the case of a crash. The fault can increase the risk of injury during a crash.

The GranTurismo affected by the recall include the model year 2016. The recall was issued for both GranTurismo coupes and convertibles. The affected vehicles were manufactured between the period of June to September 2015. 

Maserati sales figures have recently been gradually climbing. However the GranTurismo only contributes to a small portion of that growth. Maserati has been seeing an increase in sales largely due to the introduction of newer models.

In 2014 Maserati sold about 36,500 units around the world. The figures were an all-time high for the car brand. However the GranTurismo only had a 3,500 or less share in the sales. Still the GranTurismo line is the oldest by Maserati.

The GranTurismo line was introduced back in 2007. Since then Maserati has released the Quattroporte and the Ghibli in the line. Maserati is also looking to release the SUV line Levante soon. 

Maserati will notify the owners about the status of their GranTurismo themselves. The recall will be free of charge and has already begun. GranTurismo owners can also reach Maserati through customer services for their status in the recall.
