WASHINGTON Maserati North America is recalling 63 2014 Maserati Quattroporte GTS V8 cars for a battery cable that may short, which could cause a fire or stall the engine, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"The affected vehicles have an improper Y-connection crimp in the alternator-starter motor wiring harness," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "The improper crimp could cause the battery positive cable to short to ground, which may cause the wiring harness to overheat and result in a fire.

"The car also may stall, increasing the risk of a crash."

Maserati told federal safety regulators that there have been no reports of this problem on any U.S. customer vehicles, but "through an abundance of caution Maserati is launching this recall campaign."

Maserati dealers will replace the alternator-starter wiring harness. The recall is expected to begin in late December. Owners can contact Maserati at 1-201-816-2600.

Edmunds says: If you own or lease the 2014 Maserati Quattroporte GTS V8, you'll want to contact your dealer to make arrangements for the repair.
