Maserati has recalled its Quattroporte models in Australia due to a potential problem with a wiring harness.
The harness serves the alternator and the starter motor, and the recall targets a protective sealing cover.
In some models, the protective sealing cover on the connection of the engine power cable to the starter motor may have been installed the wrong way, allowing the connector to become loose over time.
If this was to occur, the cable may be allowed to contact the engine, resulting in a stalled engine or a fire in extreme circumstances.
Maserati is targeting a specific list of vehicle identification numbers (VINs) with this Quattroporte recall.
Ducati is recalling its Multistrada 1200 and 1200 S models from the 2015 and 2016 model-years due to a potential problem with the side stand.
A weakness with the joining weld for the stand has been identified, and the stand may fail while supporting the bike as it is parked.
If the stand fails, the bike may unexpectedly collapse and injure a bystander.
Maserati and Ducati will attempt to contact affected owners shortly, but any owner wishing to learn more about the latest round of recalls should contact their local dealer.
