Fantastic car. Everything you read about Ferrari is true


Coolant leak from expansion tank cap.

Broken fuel injection relay.

Faulty heater valve.

Broken sidelight lens.

Poor reception on stereo.

Hood gas struts failed.

General Comments:

The car is superb in every way.

Handling is excellent, as you'd expect, and the steering wheel is alive in your hands.

The suspension can be adjusted to give a smooth ride over bad roads, but still performs like a Ferrari when you go faster.

The sound of the V8 engine behind your head at 8,000rpm is intoxicating.

The car will take 4 people, but there's not much legroom in the back.

Faults have been minor, mainly detail items; after all, it is twenty years old.

Servicing costs are £500 for the annual service and the cam belt service (required every 3 years) costs £1500.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
