Maserati is recalling 90 Quattroporte automatics in the UK after discovering problems with the electronic control unit (ECU) on the first cars built.
The fault only occurs when the car's battery is low. A software problem prevents any signals being sent from the car's electronic sensors to the ECU.
As a result, the ECU assumes that the sensors are faulty and disengages the car's traction and stability control systems.
Owners of the cars will be informed of the problem over forthcoming weeks and invited to have a new ECU fitted free of charge.
The work is expected to take half a day to complete.
All cars built and sold since the problem was identified have been supplied with the correct ECU fitted.
Our reviews are based on hard data and thorough testing in the real world.
