The Worst Car I've Ever Driven: Maserati Ghibli V6 S

WOW. Really? Must be clickbait.

Very interesting considering the QP and Ghibli are versions of the same car. The cars in the UK have to be different as they all are negative

He is obviously using urban slang where Baaad means Good and worst means Best.
Read entire article that way it becomes very enjoyable. Cheers.

I guess I have lead a sheltered car life - the reviewer's take on the Ghibli is very different to mine - vive la difference?


My only issues with my 2015 are both related to trunk - needs dampened closing mechanism, and shape (cannot get two sets of golf clubs in there due to length of modern clubs) - Go ahead break my ****s about this stereotype) - LOL

Well when something is so off it is easy to dismiss it - the Quatroporte is a peach and the Ghibli is garbage on turns? I test drove both down a windy road and would pick the Ghibli everytime - it is sportier and hugged better and you can tell the shorter frame. This guy is off his rocker... but maybe it will dissuade people from buying and ours will be more exclusive..

Wow -- Really Bias Review

I must be driving a completely different Ghibli than the author of that piece. Mine is a peach -- except for the "premium sound system".

I'm an ex owner of a jaguar xf-s (with the same zf automatic transmission) and can say everything is at least as good as the jaguar xf-s. ok, the "premium" sound system is everything but premium...
plus the zf automatic is known in germany as one of the best automatic transmission ever build. maybe becaus it's build in germany, but in my opinion it's awesome.

That guy is either an idiot, or jelous he cannot have one........I am not going to write what I have written before........the car is amazing and any flaws are miniscule compared to the experience.........the style and the feeling of driving a Maserati......I feel it every time i drive the car........sad for the guy he must miss out on a lot of other things life has to offer.........

Well, When I read reviews like this, I think the writers have a benchmark car such as a BMW M5 or E63 Mercedes in mind against which they are subconsciously comparing. But those cars easily surpass the base Ghibli by at least $30K in price.

In its price class, a base Ghibli needs to be compared against a modestly equipped lower model 5 series, an A6 or a cheaper E Class. In my opinion, the base 5-series and E-class both feel like rental cars to me (in fact I have rented both at Hertz). The A6 is a bit nicer than those two on the inside. I suppose the Jag XF is also.

But calling the Ghibli the worst is such click bait B.S., that this writer shed any credibility by his second paragraph.

And at the end of the day, the writer gets into his used 1970 Dodge Gremlin for the long ride home. It's a lonely home, ever since his Italian girlfriend left him for a younger man in a Maserati.
