Well I have had one since 87 and it is not reliable at all.  I think 10yr 
old girls put the electicals in.  It sounds good but that is about it.
175000 sounds amazing  for an italian automobile( except fiat), how many 
engines did that include? 4,5 or 6.  The only good Maserati engine I 
have every worked on was the v6 in the Citroen SM(ah what a car)but it even
did not have a long running life 100k tops usually.
