WASHINGTON (Sept. 9, 2015) — Maserati S.p.A. and Maserati North America Inc. have petitioned the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), requesting a decision of inconsequential noncompliance regarding the tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) on certain Maserati models.
The approximately 8,789 vehicles in question are model year 2011-2013 Maserati Quattroporte and 2011-2014 Maserati Granturismo/Granturismo Convertible passenger cars, NHTSA said in a Sept. 8 Federal Register notice.
The TPMS malfunction indicators on these vehicles don't always illuminate as required under federal TPMS standards, Maserati http://www.maserati.com/maserati/en/en/index.html told NHTSA.
However, the indicators will illuminate no later than 160 seconds after the ignition is switched on, and after the car has traveled at least 22 seconds at 15 mph, the auto maker said.
Interested parties may comment on Maserati's petition until Oct. 8, NHTSA said. The Federal Register notice can be found by clicking here.
