Over the past year of owning both a Ferrari 458 Italia and a Corvette C7, I have found that both cars are very reliable. In fact, neither has had any sort of major problem or put me in a situation where I was stranded. The Ferrari had a strange headlight issue that existed before I bought it, but otherwise has only had a headliner that’s sagging, and some stretched leather on the dashboard. No mechanical problems at all!
The Corvette C7 has only had a bit of leather stretching on the center console, and the clutch pedal began to stick. It looks like it’s possibly leaking clutch fluid but if so it’s a very slow leak.
Given that both cars seems to be super reliable, I compare the maintenance costs and as you’ll see, they are basically the same! So for all the Corvette owners saying that their car is SO much cheaper to maintain, they would be wrong.
