Bought a Levante today!

So it doesn't seem that this forum is very active yet, and I hope as more people get their cars, we can talk, share, and enjoy owning this unique vehicle. I've attached a couple of pictures, and put a few miles on today. So far, so good.

Nice, welcome to the club. I have put 500 miles on my S already and loving it. My only beef is with the stick -- many reviewers have dissed it, and it is weird. But once it's in drive it's a rocket. I also mistakenly did not upgrade the stereo when I ordered my verde.

I'm also waiting for some aftermarket items to come out. Desperately need rubber winter floor mats -- it is an off roader after all -- and an OEM "Levante" license plate holder.

Btw, it's a head turner. I have people stopping to ask about the Levante. It's really unique, no one has ever seen one before. And the comments are all about how beautiful she is. I have also had a few cars race to try to catch up to her after I pass them -- they want to see what she is. Haven't we all done that? "Hey what is that car? pull up and check..." You can just imagine the comments "a Maserati SUV?!"

Nice, I would have liked to driven the S, I bet it's a monster. The base version feels very strong.

Question: do you ever feel a vibration like under the floorboard that is intermittent? Sounds like a Heat guard vibrating or something. Just curious.

Also post pics of your car if you have some!

Very nice! I see we have the same interior. It's interesting, around your wheel wells and on the bottom, it appears that it is not painted the body color, is that correct? I believe in mine it's painted white, I wonder if it can be ordered either way?

I'm not sure what you mean, but I'm curious.

Meanwhile, have you tried Apple Car Play yet? It's great for dictating texts while driving and music interface, although it's annoying Apple does not let you use google maps or Waze. It's nice to be able to use your smartphone rather than the built in gps with no traffic etc.I bought a throw away android phone so I can use Android Auto for Google maps and Waze. It's good for that -- GM is superior to Apple maps -- but otherwise I don't love the android interface.

But I love my paddle shifters.... ;-)

Hello everyone, it's nice to see there is a Maserati Levante forum. Pictures above looks great. I ordered mine in 1st week of June, the dealer told me last Monday it is schedule to arrive at the port on September 29th. I gonna call him Monday again to get the update. Between can you tell me how long does it takes to get to the dealer from the port, I live in Indianapolis.

Beautiful rides. I ordered a Sport back in May, but no ETA on delivery, as I didn't want to give up the sport seats to get it here faster. Dealer said it may come in over the next few months or may be spring, due to the sport seats being backordered. It's good to see it out on the road though, and it's definitely a head turner. Bengoshi, is yours the Verde Ossido color in those pictures? I ordered that color, not really knowing what it would look like in person, so was curious.

It is indeed an option you can order to have the painted body color trim. I believe it's called "Exterior Body Color" in the options categories when ordering.
