Expensive to own
February 18, 2019
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.
