Prop shaft defect
By Kevin Dorgan on
2008 Maserati GranTurismo 2dr Coupe (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
Stunning looking vehicle and quite rare to have 4 usable seats in this style of car. Gear box is excellent in manual sport mode, brakes only average, perhaps a little under powered, but no doubt S model will resolve these issues. It really is a joy to drive long and short distances. Engine has an enjoyable sound and in most areas it does what it was designed to do, and really quite well. However I have experienced unacceptable problems with the prop shaft. The vehicle is presently having its fifth shaft fitted. The rear tires are also wearing unevenly and at an unacceptable rate. Maserati has not been able so far to identify the cause or solution to the problem.
Looks, noise, driving experience when its running properly.
More power, better brakes, find solution to prop shaft issue if other drivers are experiencing the problem.
