Maserati is recalling roughly 40,000 Ghibli, Levante, and Quattroporte models in the United States after uncovering two defects that could lead to fires. According to U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration records, adjusting the front seats runs the risk of causing an electrical shortage and potential fire in vehicles from model years 2014 through 2017. Fuel-line leaks are also forcing Maserati to recall Quattroporte and Ghibli cars from 2014 and 2015.

Automotive News reminds us that this most recent recall is the third round from the Italian automaker within the last twelve months.

The luxury manufacturer required the return of almost 20,000 Chinese-shipped Quattroporte and Ghibli models produced between 2013 and 2015 last May — apparently due to an issue affecting the rear wheels. Two months prior it recalled almost 30,000 vehicles in North America for unsecured floor mats that were becoming caught under the vehicle’s accelerator pedal.
