The early GT's came with the incorrect amount of R134 from the factory.

Granturismo. I left the car out in the sun, it is 80 here in SW Florida, and it took THIRTY MINUTES of driving to get the air conditioning system to spew out cold air. Anyone able to tell me what is going on here? What am I doing wrong?

Thanks!
Have the system evacuated and see how much was recovered. It could be over filled or under filled.

and if it is a long time do Maserati provide a free loaner if the Granturismo is under warranty?
It only takes around 30 minutes to do the check. If they are always backed up like my dealer, it could take days. The two dealers by me don't do loaners. YMMV on this.

I think that this dealer dependent.
The owner of my dealership personally told me that if ever my car were to be serviced, he would have me drive his Bentley as a loaner car!
He was actually serious about this.
I will let you know if he comes through with this.
Hopefully I will not have to find out for an entire year when I bring my car in for it's first service check.

OK fellahs, here is an update. Drove 30 miles to the Naples Maserati dealer. They have one Maserati mechanic who actually works in the Porsche service department. I waited about 1.75 hours for them to tell me that the car needed a new Air Conditioning Compressor and they would have to order it from Italy and it could take 10 days to get one. They said I could leave the car there and they could RENT me a car (no loaner) or take my car away and bring it back when they get the part!

I WAS NOT IMPRESSED WITH THEM OR MASERATI!

Make sure they replace the reciever dryer, orifice tube, and the belt. The reciever dryer and orifice tube catch all the debris that the compressor shoots out when it goes bad. I have seen this happen many times on the QP's. The A/C compressor should be something that the dealership should keep in stock. Especially since they go out all the time on the QP's. If you ask me I would keep your car just make sure that the A/C switch is turned off. I have seen 10 days turn in to a month.

Just found out from the dealership I purchased my car from

in Marietta, GA, that they spoke with Maserati/Atlanta who told them my air conditioning problem was subject to a Maserati recall! Pity the dealer in Naples, FL where I took the car for repair yesterday did not tell me about this.

They refused to give me a loaner but now I am going to insist on one!

I sense your frustration, but they don't have to give you anything except to repair the vehicle or perform the service bulletin. I wouldn't tick them off to much unless you have a backup shop.

I already ticked them off becasue they wanted $22,000.00 more for the identical car/color/specs with 1,578 more miles than the one I bought from Marietta, GA, and that difference includes the shipping of my trade and my Maserati! Then again they think evrryone who lives in Naples or close by has a net worth like Donald Trump!

So I saved 22 grand by not buying from my local dealer but 22 grand is a LOT OF MONEY!

Wow!!!! You could purchase a nice daily driver for the 22K you saved.

I just cant comprehend how they won't/can't offer a loaner car, when I get one no problem when I take in my d.d. Honda in for anything service related.

michaeladler - I sent you a private message regarding your experience with Select in GA. Do you have some time to talk about them? They have a car I'm interested in.
