My Levante (2017) has a little over 8000 miles. I have taken to the dealer 3 times for brakes, when the steering wheel is turned to the right an in reverse, when brakes applied horrible grinding noise. Additionally, when stopping heading straight and in reverse, brakes applied, squealing. Dealer says there is nothing wrong, brakes do not need replacing and they cannot re-create the grinding noise, I took service advisor out, showed it to him and was told the grinding noise is nothing to worry about. The squeaking noise he says is normal. I never had any problems with my Ghibli brakes. I do not think an $80,000 vehicle should be having these problems.

I have the same problem with my 2017GranTurismo MC too. It squeals so loud right before coming to a full stop. I don't know if people are looking at me because they like the car, or looking at me like what is wrong with your brakes? The dealership said there's nothing they can do about it. I agree with you. An $130k car should not have these problems, but they do.

You can have a 30K car or a 130K car...Brake squeal is a common problem in all cars...Try doing like 10 hard stops from 60- 35 MPH and see if it stops..If not we can go to plan B..Jason

That's absurd. I have driven over 200,000 miles on late model AMG G63, S63, BMW M4 and M6, all with silent excellent functioning brakes. My 2018 Levante's scream all the time when driving slowly in town, and I get those looks of sympathy from other drivers too. The dealer says there is nothing they can do, but when the lease is up this $95K mistake is going back to Maserati to be someone else's problem. I'll never have another one.

Grinding noises for sure are not good and I would bet that if the dealer isn't able to solve the problem a call to Maserati North America may help.

On the squeaking of brakes, we've heard many complaints from owners on this topic, where Maserati was not able to help them despite their expectation that a car of this value should not make an embarrassing squealing noise.

We came up with our Quiet, Low Dust pads for these models as a way to help resolve the problem for many of the newer Maserati's... they really do work very well. If you're still having problems, give us a call and lets see if we can help, it really can be pretty annoying when they do squeal badly.

Best Regards,
