Maserati make some of the most luxurious sports cars in the world. They’re beautifully designed and they’re carefully engineered, but like all luxury Italian cars, they’re never as reliable as you’d hope – and when something does goes wrong it can cost a fortune to fix.
Here are just a few of the most common mechanical faults Maserati are known to suffer.
Tie rod assembly failure
Certain Maseratis (the 2005-2008 Maserati Quattroporte and the 2008 Gran Turismo) are affected by issues which can lead to the failure of the rear tie rod.
If it does fail, then there’s a significant loss of steering control and an increased crash risk – and depending on the severity of the crash, the repairs can be extremely expensive.
This seems to be a fairly common problem for all Maseratis, where the engine performance is drastically cut and the car enters what’s known as ‘limp mode’.
The engine returns enough power to get you to the garage, but that’s about it. And what’s worse is that the underlying problem isn’t easy to spot. You’ll need to find a specialist Maserati garage where they know what they’re doing – and even then you can end up spending thousands getting to the bottom of it.
