Default Maintenance costs on GranTurismo?

Thinking about getting a new GranTurismo but I am new to Maserati. Coming from Porsche, $200-$300 for an oil change at a dealer is norm in Los Angeles area. I did search before I started a new thread and so far I found $350 for an oil change which is fine with me but $2500 for annual service? What does that include? Any other maintenance costs I should be aware of? Car will be daily driven in city, approx 5k per year.

Oh yeah, I am interested in the non-S with automatic transmission because I see on autotrader dealers are discounting them very nicely. 15k-25k off MSRP seems very common so anyone with recent transaction please let me know.

Thanks in advance!

It is closer to $1800 for a 6K mile service WITH a full fluid flush/replenish. (Maserati of Orange County reference). The $2500 a year number is related more toward an annual maintenance reserve for tires, brakes, oil change, etc.

Higher annual maintenance reserve if one has the CambioCorsa or Duo-Select transmissions - which, of course, you don't.

Default Maserati Service Kit

Oil Changes seem to range from $350 to $750 at the dealership which is a very wide range. Small Service intervals run about $1600 whereas the major services (including plugs, trans fluid, accessory belt) run a bit more.

BTW, we'll be releasing our service kits for the Modern Maserati's this week which include:

SERVICE KIT for MASERATI 4.2L QP Auto / GranTurismo (Auto Trans) Including:
PERFORMANCE AIR FILTER (LIFETIME - IMPROVED PERFORMANCE)
POLLEN FILTER
MASERATI OIL FILTER
MASERATI OIL CRUSH WASHERS
QUAKER STATE QEURO 5W-40 SYN OIL (MASERATI APPROVED)
COOLANT/ANTIFREEZE (MASERATI APPROVED)
POWER STEERING FLUID (MASERATI APPROVED)
BRAKE FLUID (MOTUL - IMPROVED PERFORMANCE)
MASERATI AUXILIARY DRIVE BELT
NGK SPARK PLUGS

SERVICE KIT for MASERATI 4.2L QP Duo F-1 / All 4200 Models (F-1, Manual Trans) Including:
PERFORMANCE AIR FILTER (LIFETIME - IMPROVED PERFORMANCE)
POLLEN FILTER
MASERATI OIL FILTER
MASERATI OIL CRUSH WASHERS
QUAKER STATE QEURO 5W-40 SYN OIL (MASERATI APPROVED)
COOLANT/ANTIFREEZE (MASERATI APPROVED)
GEARBOX / DIFF OIL (MASERATI APPROVED)
MASERATI GEARBOX CRUSH WASHERS
BRAKE FLUID (MOTUL - IMPROVED PERFORMANCE)
MASERATI AUXILIARY DRIVE BELT
DENSO IRIDIUM SPARK PLUGS (IMPROVED PERFORMANCE)

Optionally, you'll be able to upgrade to the FACTORY FERRARI OIL 10W-60 which claims to produce more HP than any other leading Synthetic Oil and with a 10W-60 spec, it provides excellent protection. This is reported to produce improved running and more power simply by pouring it in.

These service products are not available on the shelf per Maserati / Ferrari's agreement with the suppliers. So we've imported them in drums and dispense them into the proper containers for servicing.

These should help owners save a bit on maintenance. You can have them shipped to you to complete the service yourself or an independant mechanic.

Of course, we also offer Code Readers / Scanners so that you can keep a checkup going.

Prices will be release later this week which I'll post in a seperate thread once it's all up on the website.

Best Regards,
-- Jeff

If you buy a 2009 Gran Tuirsmo it comes with a 4 year warranty and first service is at 24 months or 12,000 miles!

Ive had my 08 GT for a year now and I had the first service done in march when I took it out after winter. It was just an oil change and ran $395. According for maserati of new england every other year is the bigger service which runs about $1200 (I think thats what they said)... Which would be 2 years and about 15k miles for me. (I put on 7800 since last july)

Thanks to all for the quick response! My guess is factory recommends what michaeladler stated above/24 mos or 12k and dealers like to see you at least once a year. I prefer to change the oil at least once a year. Then a service every other year, expensive but not outrageous for a car in this price range.

Thanks again, now I have more thinking and window shopping to do...

I can't imagine even trying to drive these cars in any significant amount of snow. If there is enough snow on the ground to necessitate snow tires, drive something else. The combination of high torque and RWD make these amazing summer cars and horrible cold climate winter cars.

New to the board, I'm just curious what would be needed on a car with 12k miles that would cost $1,500-2,000. Obviously a Maserati is going to cost more to service than a Chevy or Honda but I'm curious as to what is really being done. Quality of oil and other fluids (I'm used to using Motul fluids) will be more but what else is there increasing the price?

If I were to get one in a few years I'll probably do the basic services (oil, brakes, etc) myself. $400 to put oil in the car is just robbery.

For me this would be a year round daily driver so we are talking 15,000 miles/yr ($2,000 in oil changes alone if I were to go to a dealer). I'm starting my research now to see which cars/brands to consider for my next car.

Neo,

You have learned the secret to owning a Maserati. The one that makes it much more fun, and insanely cheap-- DIY.

Shh. Dont tell.

As you guys with 08/08 GTs get more miles and time on in please pipe in with the maintenance costs you are seeing. And of course repairs. If I were to get one it would be an 09 or 10 so hopefully any bugs would be worked out. Not expecting Honda reliability of course but as a daily driver it needs to only be out of service a minimum of time each year. Not to mention there arent many dealerships in close proximity.

Not sure why the differential would need to be flushed at only 12k/1yr but if its under warranty I guess Id have that part done at the dealer, the rest is easy done DIY. Ill have to get a hold of a maintenance schedule to see if there are any costly inspections like on the e46 M3, inspect II was a big one.
