Maseratis are attractive cars—sporty, youthful, and loaded with luxury features. They’ve got power, they’ve got style—but they’ve also got big price tags, which puts them beyond affordability for the average motorist. That is, assuming you buy them brand new. Buying a used Maserati, though, can be a smarter way to approach things: You can get one of these great cars for a fraction of the original sticker price, sometimes as much as 45 percent off! Of course, it is important to do your due diligence and make sure you’re getting a reliable car for a reasonable price. We’ll offer some quick tips in this blog, but feel free to consult Get My Auto for further information.
First, let us offer some general pointers about purchasing any kind of used vehicle, whether a Maserati used or otherwise. The first thing you want to do is make sure you have a budget in place. Even when you buy on the secondary market, the used Maserati price may be more than you can swing. Calculate how much you can really afford in terms of car payments, insurance, and fuel costs each month, and take it from there. Note that there is financial assistance available, both through your dealership and also through local banks and credit unions. It’s obviously important to do your homework before you scope out particular cars, and we recommend reading reviews and consumer reports as well as checking a Carfax vehicle history for any vehicle you want to purchase. Once you actually see the car in question, be rigorous in inspecting and appraising the wheels, the tires, and the interiors—all good indicators of how well the car has been taken care of. You might also look under the hood, and in particular make sure the vehicle has oil. Take it for a test drive, of course, to be certain that you like the way it feels—and if you have any hesitation about the vehicle, walk away and look for something that you really feel good about.
Another point to consider is that there are various Maserati models to choose from, and it may be smart to explore a few different options to see which one you like the best. Whether you end up with a used Maserati Ghibli, a used Maserati Granturismo, or a used Maserati Quattroporte, do your due diligence and make sure you’re selecting the model that best fits your preferences.
It’s probably fair to say that, compared with many other makes, the Maserati is a little harder to find on the secondary market. That’s not to say you don’t have some options, though. Call the nearest Maserati dealership to ask about their used inventory, or head to a nearby used dealership to tell them what you want.
