DETROIT (AP) – 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 says it’s adding 2014 and 2015 Quattroporte and Ghibli sedans to the recall under pressure from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.READ MORE: Chicago Weather: Cool Lake Breeze Next 3 Days
The cars have the same gear shifters that caused the recall of 1.1 million FCA vehicles worldwide in April. That recall came after drivers complained that they couldn’t tell if the transmission was in “park” after stopping.READ MORE: How Will Chicago Police Hold Officers Accountable on New Search Warrant Rules?

Maserati says it’s doing the recall even though it has no complaints of cars rolling away unexpectedly.
