MORE RECALL INFO: 


JANUARY 2009 --  Maserati is recalling 7,912 MY 2008 Gran Turismo, Alfa Romeo, and MY 2005-2008 Quattroporte vehicles. Incorrectly torqued upper and lower ball joint nuts may cause the ball joint nuts to loosen. In time, this could lead to noise, steering wheel vibration, and failure of the ball joint stud resulting in damage or separation of the suspension arm. This could result in a loss of steering capability, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the torque of the front/rear upper and lower ball joint nuts and, if necessary, replace the suspension arms and hub carrier. The recall is expected to begin during February 2009. Owners may contact Maserati at 1-201-816-2600.   09V-001
