Maserti made their grand return to the United States in the early 2000s with the excellent Coupe, Spider, and GranSport, closely followed by the acclaimed Quattroporte and GranTurismo. Simple Italian naming conventions aside, these are incredible luxury exotics to drive and own. We service them all with factory and dealership trained technicians.
Modern Maseratis are powered by a Ferrari-derived 4.2 or 4.7 liter V8. The early cars had either a standard 6-speed manual transmission or an automated manual transmission called the DuoSelect. We have the expertise to replace the clutch assembly in DuoSelect transmissions and use genuine OEM Maserati parts.
We do all maintenance and major services for these including oil changes, coolant changes, gearbox fluid, engine air and cabin pollen filters, accessory drive belts, and brake fluid, pads, and rotors when necessary.
Common issues with modern Maseratis are usually related to the complexity of their fluid or electrical systems. Hydraulic system warning lights are common and can lead to failure if unchecked. A check engine light warning is also very common and can be related to a number of causes. We have advanced diagnositic computers that can read these fault codes and help us diagnose as well as reset and reprogram the involved systems.
Engine oil and coolant leaks can also be common issues. We have extensive experience with these cars, and since they all share similar engine architecture, we know the most likely sources of these leaks. Coming out to a dead battery can also be common if these are driven infrequently. This is usually related to a weak battery or a failed computer module that is not going to 'sleep' when the Maserati is off and drawing unnecessary current from the battery.
The power windows can also fail, and this is usually related to the window regulators going out. This can cause water leaks and do significant damage to the interior if left unchecked. Other common issues are unusual brake noise, abnormal tire wear usually on the inner tread, and creaking in the suspension over bumps. This is potentially related to the ball joints or soft bushings in the control arms failing over time.
With proper maintenance, a modern Maserati has an outstanding performance envelope and can be an incredible value in terms of exotic luxury vehicles.
