Moving cars make noise, yes, it's a common problem and hard to avoid.

It's just a characteristic, unless you see it as a problem.

My first concern is before buying this car sales person didnt tell me about that.So you said all type of car doing this i can be agree with but it isnt true , porsche,bmw, mercedes and Tesla not doing same problem with same size and Tyree type car.

Best thing is sale and buy another one.From my side its unacceptable. So if everybody accept this why car factory spend to much time and money to solve this problem?
Porsche cars do do it, my 15 gt3 does it, also does my 09 r8

My new Ghibli is doing the same thing. I've never experienced it before on any car I've owned - I've had plenty - and it is a little disconcerting. Its natural to assume something is wrong until we learn otherwise. Its helpful to have reassurance from fellow forum members. Less so to be invited to get a life and get over it. Pistonheads is a useful resource - lets just stick to the advice and try hard not to belittle forum members for asking a perfectly reasonable question.

The question's not the issue, it's the whining and incredulity that goes with it that is smile

Take a Porsche Boxster for a test drive in a smooth car park. Or search on here for similar in Porsche section. Or sue Maserati

Might be worth getting some winter wheels/tyres...? maybe not eradicate it totally, but car will benefit from it

Happens with a lot of car brands so not a fault per say (My Jaguar XF does it).

Live with it or buy a another car.

You poor sod. Your life really does sound dreadful. How do you cope? Clearly better than Ismael here, but it still sounds awful.

If it's any consolation, my 125k mile 13 yr old Mondeo steering feels lumpy when I back out of the drive but it's OK at speed. In addition, my MX5 has a warped rear wheel that I'll have to replace to stop a high speed vibration. That might cost me as much as £50. Life's hell, isn't it?
Thank you for your sympathy, I feel consoled. FINALLY SOMEONE who understands the hellish life I lead - to spend entire days wearing ear plugs as the only defense against the incessant squealing of high-performance tires...

...With regards to the lumpy steering feel of your Mondeo, may I recommend you nurse it back to the original dealer to complain, and demand they find you another 125k mi 13yo Mondeo for comparison? Best if it is the same colour. They should see your point. After all, 13yo Mondeo's are highly regarded driving machines with sophisticated suspension design that should not have any form of lumpy feel to their steering. If the dealer protests, remind them you're no fool, we all know Mondeo's have been around for well on 30 years and these kinds of niggling problems like lumpy steering feel after 125k miles have long ago been engineered out of it.
PS: Their so-called 'Techs' will tell you the CV joints are worn - but don't you believe their lies!

...50quid warped wheel problems I can't offer you advice on. Obviously beyond my means.

Living the hellish life,

Ismael,
I don't actually know what your Ghibli is doing. Can you post a video with audio?

- What I am saying is a lot of high performance cars make low-speed tire squeal as a normal result of steering geometry, surface friction with high-performance rubber compounds, and limited slip differentials. Maybe your Ghibli is doing this, or maybe the problem is something abnormal. We do not know. We only guess based on our experience, and your dealer said it's normal, and you wrote the same problem exists on another new Ghibli.

I'm sorry don't know how to answer the question the way it is phrased. My statement was that the factories would solve the problem if they could. I don't think the cost benefit exists for them to solve it.

Cheers,

THE PROBLEM:

You don't like the noise your car makes.
You don't like the answer that Maserati have given you.
You don't like the answer that other owners have given you.

THE SOLUTION:

Sell the car - It's obviously not for you.
Buy another brand but test drive it in the cold weather first.
Move with your life.
