DMAC Not sure if this would affect your pull to the right, but has your car had the rear tie rod assembly recall performed? If you’ve had it at the dealer, I’m guessing yes, but they don’t always check for outstanding recalls or software updates.

Report Date: May 13, 2013
Campaign Number: 13V196000
Component: SUSPENSION:REAR

Summary: Maserati North America, Inc. (Maserati) is recalling certain model year 2005-2008 Quattroporte, 2008 Granturismo, and 2008 Alfa Romeo 8C vehicles. The rear tie rod assemblies may have insufficient anti-corrosion material applied, allowing them to weaken and possibly fail.

Consequence Summary: Failure of the tie rods may result in a loss of vehicle control and increase the risk of a crash.

Corrective Summary: Maserati will notify owners and dealers will replace the tie rod assemblies. The recall began on June 27, 2013. Customers may contact Maserati at 1-877-696-2737. Maserati's recall campaign number is 205.

2fromtheCouve Do you have the adjustable strut perches or fixed? Also the different tires you tried.. were they different brands with different tread patterns. My wifes car pulled to the right with one brand of directional tires (4 new tires with two alignments) finally put a pair different non directional up front and it went straight.

[email protected] Enzo`s Atlanta Best advice...Find some people in your local area that road race cars...They'll have an alignment shop that everyone uses for setting up track cars...This is the place everyone in Atlanta uses....Someone like this...Have them look at it.....Jason

bdalessio No problem reported, it's just a nagging issue that I can't seem to get resolved.

[email protected] Enzo`s Atlanta The numbers look good...No need to have it on a frame rack honestly....What are they telling you is the problem? Jason

bdalessio Iíve had several shops do it and even the local dealer, San Francisco Maserati. Would it be wise to have the chassis checked on a frame rack?

[email protected] Enzo`s Atlanta That sounds like a slow pull and an alignment issue..Who is aligning the car? J

bdalessio Hi Jason, Thanks for your response. To answer your question about the type of pull, when driving down the freeway I’m fighting the car a little to keep it going strait and if I let go of the wheel it will gradually go right, the more crown on the road the more obvious the issue. On a road that’s pitched to the left, the car will mostly go strait when letting go of the wheel. I have never had an accident during my ownership, but I know there’s paint work and filler in the right rear panel (according to a paint thickness gauge).

[email protected] Enzo`s Atlanta Cross weight? are we setting up a Nascar? Two things? has it been wrecked? and is it a hard pull or soft? Hard pull is you take your hands off the wheel and your ditch bound....Soft pull is generally stays straight but generally works it's way to a direction consistently.....Jason

Pulls Right

Hello fellow QP owners. I have a 2006 with 38k miles that pulls right. It’s very annoying, and even happens when the road has no pitch. It was like that when I got the car 5 yrs ago @ 28k miles. I tried numerous alignments from different shops, two different sets of tires, front lower control arm bushings on both sides, and had the corner balance checked (50/50 cross weight). It seems better if someone is sitting directly behind me with no one else in the car, otherwise nothing else seems to have much effect... any ideas?
