I’ve just purchased a 3200 GT Auto with 13,000 miles on the clock.
Everything seems ok so far, the Automatic Stability warning light works on all corners!

However, when in “Park” the revs oscillate between 10k revs and 10.5k revs. When I come to a stop on the Foot Brake and stay in “Drive”, the Revs are constant at 10k. Do I have a big problem?

Also, there was no spare wheel. There is a mount and holder for a wheel in the boot, but I was told that the car would have been supplied with a tyre weld kit. Do you know if this is plausible?

Lastly, the protector coil, housing the ignition leads, are all fractured; you can see the wires through gap where the coils bend around corners. Is this something I should get fixed ASAP or can I leave it alone?

1.5 Weeks Later

I've had the car for 1.5 weeks now and I'm very impressed :D
The oscillation on the Revs seems to be 'normal' as all the other responses on different Maserati forums report the same feature. BTW I did mean 1k to 1.5k Revs :oops:
I'm finally getting the hang of the torque :twisted: but the problem is I just cannot resist trying to take the corner quickly - I am learning that it's faster to go carefully. The rear and front tyres have 7mm tread so I'm hoping I have a few miles remaining :?:
This weekend I'm having fitted the mobile phone car kit and a CD changer in the boot. We are going to try to marry the Becker up with a Sony CD changer (considerably cheaper) :!:
I'm still a bit concerned about the poor condition of the plastic covering around ignition leads, but Maranello did a service just before I purchased the car and it wasn't mentioned on the Service Invoice - I'm sure they would not have missed the opportunity to pitch for more business, especially around Xmas.
In summary I'm extremely pleased with the car and as long as it remains reliable I will be a permanent convert from the Audi Quattro models :!: :!: :!:

Hi,

No it didn't.

So I changed strategy and went for the latest Becker MP3 player. This gave me about 15 CD's on one disk, so it was even better than having a CD changer!

It was a simple swap - out with the old and in with the new - took about 10 minutes due to the old unit being wedged in tightly.
