Whats the best-extended warranty for a 2015 Ghibli SQ4. The car has 37K miles.
Only real way to clean these valve properly is to remove the intake and close the valves and clean them from there. And if Maserati used multiple forms of injection you’d have plenty more issues...Just got my car new and already worrying about (future) carbon buildup.
Too bad FCA didn't utilize a dual injection system (both direct and port) to wash out the inside of the valves with fuel spray.
So pure direct injection it is.
I'm sure you've seen CNC's direct injection
Any experience using it? Seems to get rave reviews.
The 2 year warranty from Maserati cost me $3700. I had seen people saying it would be about $3600, so it was in line with what I was expecting.What did they charge you to do this?
I took a quick look at the paperwork, and the breakdown is $3265 for the warranty, and $435 for the inspection, which is what brought the total to $3700. So, while your inspection costs more, you won't be that much over than what I paid provided that the warranty price is set by MNA (I'm not sure about that one).hi emathieu,
how much the dealer charge you for the inspection, i been asked 600 i think its too much they take advantage of us owners
I go to Ferrari Maserati of Atlanta. I've had some bad experiences with Jim Ellis dealerships in the past (not the Maserati dealership though) so I won't do business with Jim Ellis.Emathieu,
I see you are from Atlanta, GA. At what dealer did you purchase the warranty and have the inspection? My wife just purchased a '15 Ghibli and would possibly like to get the CPO warranty on it. She works in the Atlanta area and it makes sense for her to take it this summer.
do you still like them.I purchased the Delta Protect Extended Warranty for my '14 Ghibli SQ4 just before the factory warranty expired. . Three years/50k additional miles with zero deductible. The single sum premium was $2,800.
I did some checking before hand and feel pretty comfortable that it will cover the major (read, expensive) repairs and will cover work done at the dealer, including their $199 hourly labor rate. The only negative I have found (not first hand) is that they reserve the right to source expensive parts themselves. Some have observed that the repair was held up at the dealer a bit so they could independently obtain the part.
Is this not considered a maintenance item? Will the extended warranty cover this?Also since your car is a 15 with 37k miles I can pretty much guarantee soon you'll need the "executive package" as we called it - carbon cleaning, fuel injectors/fuel rails, oil breather, plugs/coils, the whole nine. Not a fun one to pay for out of warranty.
Neither maintenance or warranty, (factory or extended) will cover that service. It's an optional service unless there is some other reason related to a warrantied condition for the work to be done.Is this not considered a maintenance item? Will the extended warranty cover this?
