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


Review

If you do not know how to drive a real car do not buy one. this car is more fun to drive than any car i have ever owned and i have had a lot of them over 30 corvetts, several other sports cars ,mostley american built cars. never been a fan of most foreign cars but i love this coupe. i only take it out on nice days and i drive the hell out of it. it handles well goes good. does not have the power of the big american v8's but it is only about 260 cubes. and it is a hand full. you got four modes to use the six speed std trans. i love the car but if it breaks the fun is all over.i HAVE OWNED THIS FOR ABOUT A YEAR NOW, AND I AM LOVIN THIS CAR

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


Review

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.


Best Features

One major positive, people love the looks and they think it's much more expensive than its modest cost.


Worst Features

Navigation system considers a mile to be about 300 feet. No vanity mirror above driver side and the cd changer required 2 new installations making it 3 on a new car. Also the speaker is begging to be kicked when leaving the vehicle.

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Love the all leather interior design which manages to be both retro and completly modern.


Worst Features

Better fuel economy.

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


Review

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.


Best Features

When it DOES work, it is one of the best cars on Earth.


Worst Features

It needs to be better at delivery. I have had software problems, a transmission replacement, the windows realigned (so they shut), and some still to be defined issues taking up the six months since purchase. I will give it another 3 to 5 months and then sell it if need be (but really hope I do not have to).

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


Review

Just completed a 2,100 mile round trip from Florida to Tennessee. During this time I got a chance to experience everything the Maserati has to offer. My car was extremely comfortable on long highway in Florida and Georgia were I averaged 80 mph. The Skyhook suspension is amazing, even with ultra low profile performance tires the ride is never harsh in normal or sport mode. In Tennessee on the curvy mountain roads the Shyhook suspension kept the car flat and predictable. It is much easier to drive at high speeds in the curves than my wife's Corvette. Its overall gas mileage for the trip was 21.2 mpg, which is really not too bad especially with the aggressive driving done in TN.


Best Features

You really feel that you are driving something special. Everyone young and old knows it's a Maserati and love it. The exterior is very nice, and the interior is fantastic. The engine and Cambiocorsa transmission fit car's temperment perfectly.


Worst Features

The navagation system and audio need too much input to use. The electronic clutch can get confused in heavy very slow traffic. For reviewers complaints about rough shifting. Remember this is a true manual transmission car so drive it as such. Lift the gas pedal slightly when shifting keeps it smooth.
