Review of the 2002 Maserati Coupe

  • Maserati is back in a big way, with a sexy V8 coupe that will bring back fond memories of the Ghibli and make one forget the dark days of the dull and unreliable BiTurbos.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Italian looks and personality for under $100,000, the option of an F1-style transmission, comfortable cockpit, a healthy warranty.

  • Cons

    Potential for price gouging due to supply-versus-demand scenario, F1 transmission could be more refined.

  • What's New for 2002

    Respect for Maserati, as it resumes building real sports cars.

Kick in the pants!

Vehicle: 2002 Maserati Coupe GT 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6M)

One of my all time favorite cars. I have driven a lot of semiexotics and exotics. From a 1957 Porsche 356 to a 3rd gen RX-7 to Jags and Bimmers. This car performs like a Ferrari without the maintenance headache and cost. Very reliable with road couth for a high performer and still a head turner after 5 years on the road. Creature comforts but will still make the hair on the back of the neck of the dude in front of you raise up as he respectfully pulls over into the slow lane. A true 4-seater as it is functional enough to pick up my 2 kids from school. Hot enough to drive with my wife on short day trips and feel as if you are in a 2-seater.

Factory delivery was wonderful!

Vehicle: 2002 Maserati Coupe GT 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6M)

I bought the Coupe and took delivery at the Modena factory, a real treat! I have enjoyed the Coupe in every facet of driving both in Italy and the US. The '02 improved design and Marrinella produced 400 hp dry sump V8 have turned out to be a great combo, even after moving from a Ferrari! There has only been one draw back, that has been the terrible service and attitude from my dealer. They appearently have sold too many cars and neither have the capacity, customer service training, or ability to deal with this exotic or the other brands they handle.

Maserai clutch problems

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Maserati Coupe Cambiocorsa 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6AM)

This is a nice car with the worst clutch I have ever had. I've gone through three clutches in 17,000 miles and the new one seems no better. Save your repair money and buy something else. The clutch is a real lemon and Maserati will not cover any repairs (the warranty is void for the clutch the day you drive it out the door, as in a zero mile warranty). I've owned many sports cars over the years and the clutch problem is the worst I have seen.
