They have an extended warranty they offered me. 6 year, 100,000
Can't buy when new, earliest is to bring car back in after 3000 miles or 3-months for inspection. Quote I received was US $2500.
I plan to get an extended warranty, but will check around on pricing. I also bought the 4-yr maintenance plan when I picked up car.
Anyone else have any new news on extended warranty for Ghibli in US?
I contacted 3 dealers; one has info as I indicated above but needs to do a complete inspection after car has a little age to issue the 2 yr extension and the other two dealers are waiting for "Maserati" to provide pricing?
So finally got the same message from three Maserati dealers. Maserati NA must be fielding all these calls and wondering what's with the run on these warranties.
There is NO extended warranty on the Ghibli today, (might be in future), but what dealers are authorized to do is reclassify the car as Maserati Certified (after inspection) to extend the coverage to 6 years, 100K miles.
Apparently, there is little demand for the extended warranty based on high turnover after 2-4 years (end of leases / trade-ins) ... then the dealers certify prior to resale.
Some Maserati dealers have "aftermarket" extended warranties they can offer which in their point of view offers the same protection ... especially if you bring it back to them for service.
J14Ghibli - I paid worse $1995 for the 4/50 (from Bergen County).
I also got a mixed message from Maserati on 6yr/100K certification for 2014 ghibli's ... there is no program offered yet. Even though you can see the 2014 loaner/demo cars being sold certified on-line.

I'll be adding the 24 months to the car at my upcoming annual maintenance service / state inspection. I plan to keep the car for a number of years and although insurance can sometimes be overkill ... suspect it is in my best interest to have it for this car ... just in case.
