The safety of cars is a fundamental element that makes and customers must guard most carefully. The case of the defective TAKATA airbags revolutionized to the automobile sector, as this Japanese firm was one of the main suppliers of this important safety system. The story is by its neglect letting many drivers faced grave danger since the explosion of the airbag could be irregular.
In addition to this, there are also other problems that may compromise the safety of our cars. Another example might be to boot or power systems failures that could cause that these cars came out blazing. Both factors that have led to that both BMW and Maserati will be wrapped in a call to review mass for several of their models.
In this case, the massive campaign of revision will be carried out in the United States and thus, as who does not want the thing, means nothing more and nothing less than 50.260 Maserati´s and more than 230,000 BMW´s. In the case of the Italian brand the affected models are the Quattroporte, Ghibli and Levante which produced during the years 2014 to 2017. And on the side of BMW models called to review are the 3 series, 5 series and the SUV X 5.
The case of BMW is the most important by both the number of affected vehicles and the seriousness of the problem. German firm still does not know how many of their cars are installed airbags Takata and faced similar embarrassment have decided to call these models to check out their official services. These models were produced between the years 2000 to 2003 and the firm will be who to inform those affected that they will have to go through an official service.
The problem of the Maserati is not less serious than the BMW but by its lower volume can be located in another dimension. The Italian firm models are suffering from two problems that could cause the vehicle to burn. The first failure could be located in wiring located under the seats for driver and co-driver. The second failure could be a defective fuel pipe which could spill gasoline or diesel and cause a fire.
In this situation, as in the of BMW, the signature Italian is put in contact with their customers American to ask them that pass by their facilities in the country.
