In 2006, Maserati released their four door sports sedan, aptly named “Quattroporte” (literally four door”, to much fanfare. With beautifully sculpted sheet metal designed by Ken Okuyama at Pinifarina, and a potent engine provided by the one and only Ferrari, it was the perfect storm to introduce a passionate Italian sports sedan for Maserati.

Since then, there has been only one serious redesign of the car, with the first generation receiving a mid-cycle refresh in 2008. The second generation was introduced in 2013, with a complete redesign of the interior, exterior, and drivetrain platform.

The key to maintaining your Maserati Quattroporte is to have a full inspection done once a year so that you can keep an eye out on wear and tear, but also to preemptively find any potential issues that might happen in the future. If driven daily driven, the annual service is done at every 12,500 miles. This will ensure that your Quattroporte runs at optimal performance throughout it’s lifetime.

Brakes, Rotors, Pads, Fluid

Brake pad wear will vary based on driving conditions and driving style. The harder someone is on their brakes, the more frequently they must be changed. This is why it is important to inspect the brake wear at each service interval. Brake fluid must be changed every year to ensure that the system isn’t contaminated with moisture, air, or dirt.

The Maserati Quattroporte is a big heavy sedan with enough grunt to get up to serious speeds. In order to keep it in check, Maserati has outfitted the Quattroporte with some adequate braking power. The first generation cars were equipped with 330 mm diameter brakes front and rear while the second generation has 360 mm diameter brakes in the front and 350 mm in the rear.

Tires, Suspension & Alignment

The suspension’s job is to not only keep a comfortable ride; it is also to provide optimal handling characteristics. Properly functioning suspension will keep alignment within specification in a straight line as well as in the corners. Moreover, this keeps the tires from wearing unevenly. At each service interval, it is recommended to check the suspension components for any squeaks, rattles, leakage, or play. Alignment can seriously affect both tire wear as well as the handling characteristics of a car. Therefore, it is imperative that the alignment is checked on a regular basis.

Tires are also wearable items that need to be checked at every service interval. Unfortunately, many owners tend to ignore their tires. As they are the only part of your vehicle that are in contact with the ground, they affect handling, acceleration, braking, and crucially, safety. Wear will vary depending on driving conditions, driving style, and whether or not the vehicle is all-wheel drive or not.

The Maserati Quattroporte comes with these tire sizes, depending on rim size:

FRONT TIRES: P245/45ZR/19; P245/35ZR/21; P245/40ZR/20

REAR TIRES: P275/40ZR/19; P285/20ZR/21; P285/35ZR/20
