While I agree with most of your post, I think things are going to get even worse before they get better. Maserati values seem to be dropping steadily. As fall and winter approaches, even less inventory will move and that should push prices down even further. I don’t see springtime bringing any flurry of buying activity to bring prices up.I think the market is at an all time low right now and I agree- everyone is trying to sell anything they can for however much they can. Give it a few months and hopefully things will swing back around. I was anticipating on selling my 02 Spyder with 44k on it this fall but I think I'll wait til next spring when things start looking better hopefully.
I'm with you - and perhaps biased. I bought my '02 and have had issues, as many of you know, with the CC. HOWEVER, that is the ONLY issue I have had and, correct me if I'm wrong, but the CC issues (i.e., pump, relay, clutch, etc.) have been on ALL the model years - how many threads are there about F1 issues on 03/04/05 ?? My understanding from the dealer is that once the original clutch on the 02 has been replaced, the only difference is the software - so, I'm not sure why the '02's have a bad rep. The engines and gearbox are exactly the same.My Coupe CC has 45k now and zero transmission problems, original F1 pump, one clutch replacement at about 30k. Respectfully, we may be contributing to the depreciation problem by perpetuating rumours and gossip about certain years, certain models. I had a few issues early on, but this car had been a daily driver up to about 35k and has been as reliable as anything else I've had.
