i believe both previous owners took good care of my guess is maybe this happened by a transporter from the first owner to a maserati dealer here where the second owner got it.i'm the third.

i don't think there's a specific problem w/certain build dates,or cause for worry in general,but did want to pass it on bc it happened.these are great and tough cars,but i guess anything mechanical can fail.
