Review of the 2005 Maserati Coupe

  • A compelling combination of performance and luxury at a "bargain" price -- at least in the world of exotics.

  • Safety
  • Pros

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

  • Cons

    A somewhat less well-known and less easily identifiable cousin of Ferrari.

  • What's New for 2005

    A new clutch and revised software make the Cambiocorsa transmission a bit smoother.

Ever see a lemon on

Vehicle: 2005 Maserati Coupe Cambiocorsa 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6AM)

First a blowout then the sensors couldn't differentiate between a stop sign, red light and intentional turn off of the car. The result was the car spent more time in the shop and with AAA roadside assistance or Maz roadside assistance than on the road with me. The little gear shift is easily broken (esp by valets @ $1500 a pop ) and you can get service for an easy $500-800 anytime it is due. The 1st 2000 miles were awesome. The rest absolutely stunk and I felt extremely insecure. Maybe if I rotated the tires every 5k miles it would have handled better but this turkey is not recommended.




Terrific gt car

Vehicle: 2005 Maserati Coupe GT 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6M)

I have never owned a car which has attracted so much favorable attention. People assume it is an Italian exotic in the same price range as Ferrari. It is more fun to drive than any car I have ever driven. Plenty fast with the great Ferrari built engine and beautifully balanced handling.

For a hobby only

Vehicle: 2005 Maserati Coupe GT 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6M)

This car is not all that great. The tires are 90 days backlogged (so buy a new set of four if one goes). It has software problems that cause stalling and no real answer. For $80,000 or there abouts, it is a bit rough (and I am just referring to the time it takes on the phone). The check engine light has been on since I purchased it and when it was "fixed" it lasted two minutes.
