Feb. 9, 2012 (China Knowledge) - Maserati, an Italian luxury car manufacturer, today began recalling 222 vehicles in China due to flawed brake lights, said China's General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine
In a statement, AQSIQ
said the to-be-recalled autos consist of GranTurismo, GranTurismo S and GranCabrio coupes manufactured from June 2008 to April 2010.
The Italian car maker said Ferrari Maserati Cars International Trading (Shanghai
) Co Ltd will conduct free inspection and maintenance of the affected vehicles.
Last November, Maserati announced plans to recall six GranTurismo S, produced between August 2010 and November 2010, in mainland China due to flawed gearboxes.
In 2011, Maserati saw its China sales nearly double to 780 units, making the country the company's second largest market worldwide or the largest one in Asia.
Sales of the Quattroporte models accounted for 57% of the total sales Maserati realized in China last year, said a person familiar with the matter.
Maserati added a total of four dealerships in Wuhan
in China last year, bringing the auto manufacture's sales network in the country to 15 cities.
