2018 Maserati Ghibli review: Our expert's take


What it is: Maserati's Ghibli mid-size sports sedan competes with the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Powered by a choice of twin-turbo V-6 engines, the Ghibli is available with rear- or all-wheel drive.


Changes include new GranLusso and GranSport trims, adaptive full LED headlights, more power for the higher-output V-6 engine and electrically assisted power steering.

Love it

I was initially concerned about some of the reviews on the 14’s & 15’s. I ended up buying a 2018 Ghibli SQ4 GranLusso. We are very happy with the car. It has been reliable and extremely fun to drive. I have the red interior with Bowers Wilkens stereo. I could care less about some of the concerns with the info system being too rudimentary...looks fine to me. I will find any excuse to drive the car. Enjoy.

2.1

Maserati Ghibli is a very bad car

There are only 2 good things about the Maserati Ghibli: 1- the engine 2- outside looks The inside looks as it was made by a Chrysler for their lower level cars. The handling is good when you drive straight. Good luck If you try to take a sharp turn when you are driving fast, it is worse than KIA. The electronics are the pits, the telephone connection goes bad every 2 weeks - the seat setting just don't work. The tires rapture when you go over bump ( I had to replace 3 tires already in less than 15,000 miles). I am so disappointed - it is a ripoff.

Expensive to own

We purchased the Maserati ghibli with 9K miles and already have issues with the front brakes, calipers are scratched. Spoke with the dealer and they informed me that I own a high performance car and that this is normal and not covered by the warranty. I also inquired as to the brake pads and he again informed me that I have a high performance car and should be changing the brake pads every 10K miles. The car came with Perrelli PZero tires which will need to be replaced soon even though they state a high treadwear. Again the dealer informed me that I now own a high performance automobile. We traded in our Mercedes E350 with 50K miles and never had to change the brake pads and only changed the set of tires once and towards the 50K mark. I like the styling of the car and the performance is good but I am not a race car driver and this is my wife's car. I have not been impressed with the dealer service or the high service intervals for tires and brakes.
