Maserati Recalls Cars with Flickering Brake Lights

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – Maserati North America, Inc. has agreed to recall certain model-year 2022 Maserati MC20 “supercars” which might have faulty rear lamp assemblies.

The recall population covers 56 of the two-door sports cars which have a printed circuit board as part of the taillamp assemblies “with an alternate MOSFET transistor that flickers under certain braking conditions,” according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Part 573 Safety Recall Report 22V-265.

The NHTSA report outlined the safety risk as, “A brake lamp that flickers during braking may cause confusion to drivers following the vehicle, which can cause a vehicle crash without prior warning.”

The vehicles in question were built between Nov. 5, 2021, and Feb. 28, 2022. Similar vehicles built before or after those dates are not affected by the recall or the problem.

Franchised Maserati dealers will inspect, and if necessary, replace the taillamp assemblies as the remedy for the issue. Owners and dealers are scheduled to receive notification of the recall by June 3rd.
