Safety Recall

Oh goody, just received a letter from MNA announcing an upcoming recall (2d or 3d qtr) having to do with a potential fire risk due to a possibly incorrect seat wiring harness. Never a dull moment.

That one has under review for a while. It was originally isolated to a limited number of cars in Europe but out of safety they're doing a much wider range of 2014-2016 vehicles.
I was hoping to get that done with the others but will have to wait it seems while they build inventory of the parts.

Not really, no. This is only a NA campaign, the European cars aren't affected as the wiring harness is different.

Your correct. Although the first incident occurred December 2015 in Korea (left hand drive vehicle) and by February 1, 2016 Maserati confirmed one vehicle had a fire under the seat which triggered the bigger recall. Its taken over a year to find the appropriate fix. Chronology is below.

It appears to be isolated to left hand drive vehicles ... which you would expect to impact certain markets in Europe?

Well, no The wiring is apparently different for Europe.
I'm in a LHD market and most of Europe is LHD. Only UK is RHD, and they're kinda leaving the Europe, but that's a story for another time

Until your ride catches on fire and your insurance company and MNA discover you didn't have the safety recall done, then what?
