Summary:

Performance bargain of the decade

Faults:

Fuel injection relays (50.000Km).

Fuel injection relays (60.000Km).

Alternator (58.000Km).

Erratic A/C control panel (not fatal).

General Comments:

Monster performance, monster torque. Easy to keep up with a Porsche 996 at a fraction of the price. Go for it!

It handles great, faster than a BMW M3, can cruise at 150mph all day. Just keep in mind that a Maserati requires respect, and lots of TLC. Treat it well, and it will perform faultlessly. Skimp on servicing, abuse it when cold, generally not care about it... and it will turn against you.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
