Any members own a Maserati?

I was just curious, I saw a Grand Tourismo the other day and it looked and sounded unbelievably beautiful. It is not often that I see them on the roads; what do you think of them without mentioning depreciation?

Isn't Maserati the most unreliable brand in existence?

They aren't that great.
I've seen several review by Doug DeMuro on youtube and he strongly suggests to avoid. They are overpriced for their value.

do not do it. with a 20 percent discount my friend paid 3200 for a break job on his quatroporte. coming from an m6 with bmw service package he was not too thrilled.

other friend had one back in the 2000s and the gps was junk. he brought it in and they couldnt fix it. the GM asked him why he wanted the GPS and said what you dont know where you are going?

maserati is just a cheaper Ferrari. except in a Ferrari you are driving a Ferrari. the feeling is night and day.

I see them around me all the time.

I love the look and sound as well.

I don’t have any real experience with them or reliability though.

What I do know is if you buy used, you will likely getting screaming deal. I was very serious about them before I got my GTS. And the pre owned deals are very tempting to say the least.

I have nothing but good to say about them.
Made at least 5k on everyone I sold.

Was this before you switched to the current profit percentage?

I live in Italy and see a Maserati Hearse almost weekly. A pretty impressive vehicle!

Look it up...

Today I saw a disabled Range Rover on a flat bed tow truck on the highway. Basically, it reminded me of your average Maserati. The nicest thing about the car is the Trident badge on the front grille.
The rest is a big meh for the money or reliability.

Mine does 185.

But I lost my license, now I don’t drive.






Just kidding. I wouldn’t own one. Buddy of mine has one. Not sure which one it is. It is fast and sounds awesome. But the repair bills are stupid. And there will be repair bills.

We rented one for a weekend, the Ghiibi. Enjoyed it, but the throaty exhaust got to be a bit much driving around the neighborhood. The electronics were from the Chrysler 300 parts bin. Enjoyed the drive, but not for us. Great for a weekend romp though.

I know the Ghirli is complete trash. The Quattroporte is pure class. And embarrassing reliability

I have 4 friends who all own a grand turismo, I think the oldest one is a 2014 and newer among the group. They are gorgeous and very imposing cars. Love the sounds and they are all enamored with them. They all have good things to say. Possibly they are the newer generation and that makes a difference. Owning an italian car is something that if you can, do it once in your life. Buy a one year old pre owned or really squeeze the dealer, they do depreciate the first couple years.

You're clearly not in LA! I feel like every other car is a Maserati. Tons of Ghiblis or however it's spelled and a few gran tourismo and a hand full of levantes. The lease rates seem to be reasonable but as others have mentioned, the reliability is not they're selling point.

Just saw 3 in a 30 minute drive. I tried talking my parents into a pre owned one since they depreciated so fast but they didn’t bite. Don’t they/didn’t they use Ferrari engines? They’re cool cars, sound great, but are fairly common; atleast in my area.

I think the brand went downmarket in recent years. Price is similar to Porsche now, but quality is reputed to be low

They did at one time and think they still do. My buddy’s is probably 10 years old and he is always happy to point out the prancing horse on the parts under the hood. Front passenger window regulator went bad. $2200 later......

Maserati was acquired by Ferrari years ago.

Nowadays they all have Ferrari engines. More reliable (fortunately) than before as a consequence but quite expansive for parts and maintenance.

Sounds about right for when I was trying to talk my parents into one. Literally 1 or 2 years old pre owned we’re about half or less of MSRP. $2200 for a window regulator is nuts though. Passenger would just have to suck it up haha
