This car is strictly "looks only", it is not reliable or even close to it.
I have already sank $13,760 in repairs at only 23K miles.
This is totally unacceptable for a $140K car when new.
I am taking it to the auction next week to "unload" before it can empty my wallet again.
But if you want a sharp car that sits good in the driveway - this is it!
Just don't drive it anywhere!!

Im having the hardest time figuring out why I $113k car is worst than my 92 chevy cavalier. This car has been in the shop more than I can remember. TOO many problems for a luxury car. Computer sensors/transmission failures/alarm malfunctions/clutch/battery/engine failure systems problems just to name a few. I will NEVER buy another.

Bought with 9,000 miles and 12 months left on warranty. More time with Ferrari/Maserati Houston than driving. Throw-out bearing/seals warranty replaced but clutch plate not covered ($1000 part). Software problems=failed plugs ($1000). Failure both fuel pumps ($3,500). Door mechanism failure, plus numerous trips to get transmission software upgrades. Car has total 15,000 miles on odometer. Even the most trivial parts are special order from Italy. I will NEVER buy an Italian car again.
