WASHINGTON—Maserati S.p.A. and Maserati North America Inc. have petitioned the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, requesting a decision of inconsequential noncompliance regarding the tire pressure monitoring systems on certain Maserati models.
The vehicles in question are approximately 8,789 model year 2011-13 Maserati Quattroporte and 2011-14 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 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 at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2015-09-08/pdf/2015-22569.pdf.
