A feast of sensory Italian delight, the 2014 Maserati Quattroporte offers a sexy exterior design and a throaty exhaust note. You will not see one on every corner - it's distinctive, which is powerful stuff in the luxury segment.
You'll Like The 2014 Maserati Quattroporte If...
Because of its exclusivity, Italian design, high level of interior craftsmanship, and solid performance, the Maserati Quattroporte stands apart from other entries in the luxury market. Its distinctiveness also increases the chance that the valet will park your car out front.
You May Not Like The 2014 Maserati Quattroporte If...
While it has plenty of character, the Maserati Quattroporte does not have the same level of cutting edge technology in driver-assist and infotainment systems found in rival German sedans like the Mercedes S-Class, BMW 7-Series or Audi A8.
Best to use vehicle in summer and fall and spring. However, it is all wheel drive and can be used in winter conditions.
Very good looking auto. Vehicle is rare and receive many compliments. Only complaint is vehicle has high maintenance costs.

In the affected vehicles, the driver-side floor mat anchor may break allowing the floor mat to move and get trapped between the accelerator pedal and the vehicle carpet.
If the floor mat moves and becomes trapped between the accelerator and the vehicle carpet, it may result in very high vehicle speeds, which could cause a crash, serious injury or death.

Maserati North America, Inc. (Maserati) is recalling certain model year 2014 Quattroporte and Ghibli vehicles manufactured June 1, 2013, to February 28, 2014. The affected vehicles, equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission and a monostable gear selector, may mislead owners about which gear the vehicle is in and may not adequately warn the driver when driver's door is opened and the vehicle is not in PARK, allowing them to exit the vehicle while the vehicle is still in gear.
Drivers thinking that their vehicle's transmission is in the PARK position may be struck by the vehicle and injured if they attempt to get out of the vehicle while the engine is running and the parking brake is not engaged.
