Maserati Lemon Law Attorney
Maserati is a luxury Italian automobile manufacturer that was founded in 1914. Currently owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Maserati cars were initially associated with Ferrari. Maserati customers enjoy that these luxury vehicles are well-designed and exclusive, producing a limited number every year. Despite being high-end and manufactured in limited numbers, Maserati cars can be lemons with ongoing defects.

California’s Lemon Law for Maseratis
Maserati only produces a limited number of vehicles every year. Many consumers assume that since Maserati is producing such an exclusive vehicle, they’ll receive a beautiful piece of machinery that they can enjoy for years to come. Unfortunately, no car manufacturer is immune from manufacturing lemons.
A Maserati may slip through quality control, be poorly designed, or have defective parts. Vehicle owners and lessees can use California’s lemon law to pursue relief from persistent or dangerous issues with their vehicles. The law applies to all car makes and models sold in California, including the following Maserati models:
- Quattroporte VI Diesel
- Quattroporte VI GTS
- Quattroporte VI S
- Ghibli III
- Ghibli III S
- Ghibli III Diesel
- GranTurismo S
When a vehicle qualifies as a lemon, the manufacturer or distributor will be required to buy back the defective vehicle or replace the vehicle. It’s essential that you have an attorney involved in the process to ensure that you are getting the total amount of compensation you are entitled to from Maserati.
Does My Maserati Qualify As a Lemon?
The best way to determine whether you can pursue compensation under California’s lemon law is to reach out to an experienced attorney. At Wirtz Law, we offer clients a free case evaluation. We will evaluate your situation and advise you whether your vehicle qualifies as a lemon. The repairs of the vehicle must be under warranty to be eligible for relief under California’s lemon law. Other requirements for a vehicle to be a lemon include the following:
- The vehicle is a new, or pre-owned, or certified Maserati
- You purchased or leased the Maserati
- When you bought or leased the vehicle, it was covered by a “new car” warranty
- The vehicle had a defect or defects that required it to be in the shop before the warranty expired
- The manufacturer has had a reasonable number of opportunities to repair the defect
- Or, the vehicle has been in the repair shop cumulatively for 30 or more days
What Is a Substantial Defect?
California’s lemon law requires a substantial defect for a vehicle to be considered a lemon. It must have not been fixed after multiple attempts. Or, it could have been at the dealership 30 or more days trying to get fixed. A substantial defect impairs the vehicle’s use, value, or safety. A defect that prevents the vehicle from being driven as much as you want or in the manner you expected might be a qualifying defect.
If you are not getting the luxury brand value you paid a premium for, you may have imparied value. Finally, a defect is substantial when it puts the driver, passengers, or other drivers at risk due to a safety defect.
Common Maserati Defects
Many different defects can cause a Maserati to be a lemon. Engine issues, transmission problems, and brake problems all can be dangerous and cause an accident. Other common Maserati problems include the following:
- Battery, charging, and range defects
- Repeated check engine lights turning on
- Computer and electrical system problems
- Brakes overheating and brake failure
- Vibration in the transmission, axles, steering column, or brakes
- Engine issues, including loss of power, engine failure, and sluggish performance
- Leaking water, oil, fuel, coolant, or other fluids
- Transmission lurching, lunging, jumping, jerky shifting, or not functioning correctly
- Vibration in the transition, axles, steering column, or brakes
If you’ve gone to the dealership multiple times to fix any of the defects listed above or any other defects, you may be entitled to compensation. We recommend discussing your case with a lemon law attorney who will advocate for you to get the compensation you deserve. If you go through the process alone, Maserati may try to downplay the defect and deny you the replacement or buyback you deserve.
I Think My Maserati is Defective. What Do I Do Now?
If you suspect that you’ve purchased a Maserati lemon, you will need to allow the Maserati dealership a reasonable number of attempts to fix your Maserati. Two repair attempts may be enough to meet this requirement. We recommend keeping all of your records from visits to the dealership. Maintain a log of any communications you’ve had with the dealership regarding the defect. Once your vehicle has been into the shop two or more times and still has problems, it’s time to reach out to an experienced lemon law attorney. Wirtz Law has expert trial attorneys to assist you with your lemon law claims.
