Not quite enough of you drive Maseratis for the brand or any of its models to have appeared in the 2022 Driver Power customer satisfaction survey, and the same applies to any of the MC20’s rivals, so it’s difficult to say how they compare as an ownership proposition.

Historically some of the brand’s models have had a reputation for fragility and expensive repair bills, but Maserati has worked hard to improve quality in recent years, and like its premium rivals, Maserati now offers comprehensive servicing packages, extended warranties, and roadside assistance. And in our experience of the car so far, it has appeared both well-built and fault-free.

You may be unsurprised to learn that Euro NCAP hasn’t crashed any MC20s in the pursuit of safety testing, but a motorsport-style carbon tub, airbags, and electronic safety nets, plus the active safety benefits of high levels of grip and braking ability, provide reassurance.

Warranty

All Maseratis come with a three-year warranty as standard. The mainstream range then offers an optional five-year extension with unlimited mileage, and up to seven years covering the car’s mechanical components, but Maserati hasn’t yet revealed whether this will also apply to the MC20. Maserati does offer what it calls an Extra10 warranty for driveline cover up to the car’s tenth year, covering all models except the brand’s electric vehicles.

Servicing

Pre-paid maintenance programmes are available on the MC20, just as they are on other Maserati models. In the MC20’s case, they’re offered under an MC20 Premium Service package, covering the first three to seven visits, and include a complimentary pick up and delivery service where available.
