Autotrader Find: Maserati Coupe for $17,995

Today, I am presenting to you a Maserati for the price of a Toyota Corolla. Actually, not even a Corolla: The Corolla starts at $19,365 with shipping, which is $1,370 more than this Maserati. This Maserati is the price of a Yaris — a decently equipped Yaris. See the 2004 Maserati Coupe models for sale near you

Here’s the situation: This is a 2004 Maserati Coupe, the predecessor to today’s GranTurismo, offered by Maximum Auto Outlet in Manassas Park, Virginia, outside of Washington, D.C. It has 41,710 miles. It has a clean, accident-free Carfax report with 18 service records, primarily from the local Ferrari-Maserati dealership. It has a muscular 4.2-liter V8 that made almost 400 horsepower when new. It’s a one-owner vehicle. And it’s available for $17,995.

"How is this possible?" you might be wondering. Well, there are two reasons that come to mind. One: It’s a Maserati. Maserati models are not known for excellent depreciation. If you were to purchase a new Maserati today and keep it for 4 years, you may have people offering you a straight trade for a pet hedgehog when you go to sell it.

The other possibility: The Maserati Coupe was not known for reliability. It has two major issues in particular. One is the clutch, which is a pricey fix, and the other is the optional (but common) Skyhook suspension, which is an even pricier one. For all we know, this car may need both items addressed. Or maybe it needs none, and it’s just a perfect, one-owner Maserati that you could drive today for the price of a Yaris with optional power windows. Find a 2004 Maserati Coupe for sale

  1. Lots of deals to be had in the DC area for lease turn ins when XYZ country’s staff get reassigned or sent home. 

  2. Isn’t this the Ferrari 4.2L V8, and with 41k+ miles, and it’s not a manual which means it’s probably some terrible want to be F1 gearbox. This is no nice price my friend, this isn’t even crack pipe, this is like a meth pipe.
