2014 Maserati Ghibli S AWD Review
handling, acceleration, seat comfort, outstanding sat nav, fit and finish is outstanding
a bit noisy, and you must drive it hands on, it is not a cruising vehicle
Gorgeous To Look At And Much Fun To Drive — We were not sure at the beginning and felt we needed a second extended drive to check it thoroughly. It passed all tests in city traffic, on windy and hilly roads and open freeway. The braking is tremendous and you can actually adjust the pedals from the drivers seat. There is a persistent growl of the engine when driving above 60 mph and it just is what it is. We drove the Q4 and it hugs the road like glue, has instant power and tremendous comfort. We had the sport package and most of the luxury options. Our other cars are a Ferrari California and an Acura MDX, so this was the sedan we were looking for to fill the gap. At the end of the drive we decided to purchase the Q4 with sport, premium (not the top end) stereo and most of the upper end packages. We tend to keep cars for a long time, so it has to fit into the larger picture. The maintenance schedule and costs are very reasonable and it runs on 10% ethanol, which the Ferrari does not. Over all, we think this is a cost effective option in contrast to the higher end Maserati's and delivers much more value. Will have to see how the depreciation works out, but my wife wants this as her primary vehicle.

It was actually a 1975 Merak, but CAR IQ doesn't list Meraks under Maserati(I guess they won't pass my CAR IQ test). In 1975 it was probaly a real screamer. Faster than a Ferrari 308 of the same vin... Read More
