2001 Ferrari 550 Maranello 2dr Coupe (5.5L 12cyl 6M)


Review

The engine mounts in my 550 failed at 15,000 requiring a $1,500 repair. Ferrari's customer service rep explained that this is normal for the 550. I have owned many cars and have never had to replace engine mounts before. The customer service rep. told me that at 15,000 miles I have put more miles on my 550 than most owners. In fact he said, "let's face it 90% of our cars are driven less than 2,000 miles per year - and then only to the country club". If you drive your car this much I can't tell you what else will go wrong".


Favorite Features

Steering feel, perfect balance and handling.


Suggested Improvements

Build quality. the leather on the steering wheel hub delaminated, the rear shelf carpet is coming off, one of the doors has shifted out of alignment causing wind noise and there are some recurring rattles that can't seem to be fixed.

Review

I consider this a fortunate choice. I shopped around for along time and got extensive seat time in a number of exotics. But nothing compared to the 550. It has not disappointed! Superb build quality, wonder performance and, unlike the Edmunds experience, I have had no real glitches.


Favorite Features

engine, exterior looks


Suggested Improvements

I don't see how it could better than it is.
