Which used Maserati Spyder sports should I buy?
WIth every car having the same engine, the main issue is the gearbox, as neither of the two options is completely perfect.
Paddle-shift models can be clunky if you haven't mastered the technique. The Sport mode can be jerky and there's also an auto mode that isn't very smooth. The six-speed manual, on the other hand, works well enough, but the gearlever is set too far forward to reach comfortably, and the changes aren't slick when the 'box is cold.
