Fiat Chrysler is adding 13,000 Maseratis to a recall of vehicles with confusing gear shifters like one in the SUV that crushed and killed Star Trek actor Anton Yelchin. The company said Thursday, June 23, 2016, it's adding 2014 and 2015 Quattroporte and Ghibli sedans to the recall under pressure from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Maserati North America is recalling at least 39,381 vehicles after it discovered two separate defects that could cause fires.

In certain 2014-2017 Quattroporte, Ghibli, and Levante vehicles, the luxury automaker says that adjusting the front seat may cause the seat wiring harness to rub against metal points, which could eventually lead the seat to malfunction. In rare cases, it could result in an electrical short and risk of fire. The company expects to begin the recall of 39,381 vehicles for the defect on March 21.

In a separate case, Maserati said that certain 2014-2015 Quattroporte and Ghibli vehicles have fuel lines that may leak fuel. It expects to begin the recall of 10,879 vehicles for the defect on Feb. 28.
