Why I'm selling my 550
By Alexander Schilling on


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


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".

Best Features

Steering feel, perfect balance and handling.

Worst Features

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.
