    This car has been abused. I've seen A LOT of these Quattroportes and this has the worst looked after interior I've seen. The Italian leather typically holds up much better than that used in the likes of BMW and Jaguar. Some if not all of the fit issues are down to abuse. These are pretty decent cars, but no premium car is built to stand up to abusive owners. Most I've seen are in pretty good shape. The styling is by Pininfarina and universally praised. Never seen anyone trash the looks before, as many commenting here have. The engine is from Ferrari. It's a good unit with comparable power to similar naturally-aspirated units from Jaguar and Mercedes from the time...actually 5% better....50% better when you consider this unit entered production in 2002. Sure, these cars aren't cheap to maintain. Which comparable European sports sedan is? These cars date back to 2004 with the F1 Duoselect gearbox, and 2007 with the ZF 6-speed auto. And the ZF was widely used and widely respected. IMO, these QP Vs from 2007-12 are the best cars of their type from that period. And fit and finish is the same as a Ferrari from that period. The newer Maseratis have been downgraded both quality-wise and performance-wise, and the new QP was even designed in-house. Fiat put Maserati under Alfa Romeo, and Fiat/Alfa have for some unfathomable reason downgraded the brand, targeted fleet sales and the Chinese market, introduced the Ghibli as a second four-door saloon that has no rival for the Alfa Giulia Quadrifoglio, introduced the Levante that has no rival for the Alfa Stelvio Quadrifoglio, dropped the option of the Ferrari V8 from the QP, and left the ageing GranTurismo in production for 12 years and counting without any major upgrades. Personally, I don't understand people who trash the QP V with the ZF box. It's a a very good example of a Euro sports saloon of its time. If anything, prices have bounced back a little in recent times, too. Biggest problem is its fuel consumption, which is very poor, even for its time. All that said, I wouldn't pay US$10K for this particular car with that mileage in that condition, let alone after knowing its recent history. If the Phantom's interior was in a similar condition, how much do you think it would be worth? Who would want it? I think the answer is the same for this QP. Sad because I personally like the exterior colour very much.

There have been mass lawsuits against gm for these issues with dexcool in the 3.8 4.3 5.0 5.7 ... Believe me it's NOT a good choice! You were warned!

    This channel is an utter waste of time. It's a real tribute to the magnificence of America as a marketplace for ANYTHING that this jagoff can make a living buying things like old Mercedes-Benz station wagons with 200K miles on the clock and then, predictably, wading through thousands of dollars of repairs. OVER and OVER and OVER again. To make it worse, his stale, corny attempts at humor don't work, but hundreds of thousands of dopes watch anyway. This is TV for the dumb new kind of American who will sink the last nails into the coffin into which our broken nation's future will be laid.
