What's the used MASERATI QUATTROPORTE Saloon like?

It's a proper Italian luxury car. On the open road, there's masses of grip and good body control. However, the car lets itself down a bit on twisty roads and rough surfaces, where the ride can get quite fidgety.

It's quiet in the cabin most of the time, but the lovely sound of the V8 engine does creep in when you push it hard. Still, that's no more than you'd want.

At low speed, the automatic gearchange is fine, but it gets jerky the faster you travel. And, overall, the shifts aren't as smooth as many owners of this sort of car will expect.

Inside, there's acres of wood and leather, but anyone with biggish feet will find the footwell a bit tight. It's easy to rub your head on the grab handle above the door if you're sitting in a certain position, while sculpted rear seats mean the car is only meant for four, rather than the five you might expect.
