Anyone here a member of the Maserati club ?

Should you join the national or state club?

Is it worthwhile ?

as far as i see it, the maserati club is one of the less active car clubs around in Australia, the Poms are really into their Mazas over there so I joined their forums, lots of great info.

Eg: I saved myself $5000 by taking my masers Electronic throttle body to a volvo repair centre instead of to maserati. Maserati wanted $6500 for a new ETM which will end up failing again in the future because the product has a limmited lifespan just because of the way its designed. Volvo used the same throttle body but they have developed a technique to rebuild the original ETM so it will not fail anymore.

Long story short if your having engine light probs and car goes into limp mode give me a PM and i'll point you in the right direction...

best forum ive found is

Mine's the Cambrio Corsa, manual F1 paddles and an auto mode, you need a new clutch every time you fill up I'm told :doh:

Hi Guys
Just joined to get myslef out of the Maserati wilderness.  I've had Maserati's for the last 15 years and have to say it's one roller coaster of an existence.  My current ride is a 3200GT Assetto Corsa (#5 of 10 in Oz - well officially anyway).  I've had the throttle body done - bought one from Bill McGrath in the UK and had it fitted locally - still came out over $2K in front.  They said that rebuilds had not yet proven reliable so while the new one had a limited life (approximately 8 - 10 years/around 70,000K depending on driving style it was still the better option.  Good to know about the Volvo angle though.

And so to today's drama - clutch pedal not returning to level and no peddle pressure.  Not fun driving home with no clutch or very slight pressure.  So it's off to Maserati again for diagnosis.  The car has just come back from having all the front end oil plumbing redone after grounding the front cross member at speed and cracking all the pipes and the cooler. Joy oh Joy.

On the 42000 clutch it was explained to me when I was deciding between the 3200 and a 4200, that the gearbox is a clutchless manuual not an auto - so leaving it in gear at the lights is like riding the clutch.  THis is one of the reasons they need replacing evey 20k or so.  Anyway with the current problem looks like I'll be learning all about 3200 clutches as well!!

Cheers
