Roughly 40,000 newer Maserati vehicles are affected by a potential fire risk, prompting a recall.

Maserati has recalled 39,381 2014-2017 Ghibli and Quattroporte sedans and the Levante SUV to fix a wiring harness that can rub against the seat frame when it’s adjusted, causing the wires to be weakened. This could result in the seat adjustment failing or a short that could cause fire, according to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.

It’s unclear if any incidents or injuries have been reported in connection with the problem.

Owners of the affected vehicles will receive letter notifications next month from the company informing them of the recall, at which point they can schedule a repair with their dealership. For more information, call Maserati’s recall hotline at (201) 510-2369 regarding recall 342.
