Editor's Overview

Not content to be a niche player, Maserati's Ghibli sports sedan for 2015 attempts to rain on the parade of such well established players as the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series and Cadillac CTS. Unfortunately, while this sexy Italian has the looks to turn heads, its performance aspirations come up a bit short of the mark.

The Maserati Ghibli: what you should know.

Overall, it is a great car. For the price and roominess in the car, it is safe and fast if you are looking for some excitement. Once your foot is on the gas the car goes into drive and quickly without a lag like other cars. The secure keyless system is great, even if you do not have your key in your hand, you can lock and unlock doors without searching for your keys. The only part of the car that I do not like is that it is wide, and parking often becomes a challenge. Other than that, the overall gas use of the car is not terrible, the drive is smooth, and luxury is there with the comfort of a sporty race car. The other negative about the car is the sound system. It is pretty crappy, sound is not clear and speakers are unnecessarily loud. The treble and the bass are completely off, it is hard to figure out what the problem is and how fix it. Be careful when parking the car becomes the front bumper is pretty low and it can scratch. There is a plastic piece under the car anytime you go over a bump it sounds like you are destroying the bottom portion but rest assured this is a plastic piece not the actual car. Also, be aware of breaks and tires, anything worn out is a huge bill that you have to pay - try to take care of these issues prior to returning your car to avoid the headache and extra charges. The seats are comfortable, the trunk is large, deep and very roomy.
