50,000 Miles TOO MUCH for a California Buyer?

Discussion in 'California/Portofino/Roma' started by LamboGuyGetsRari, Aug 2, 2019.

  1. Been in the market for a California for quite some time.

    I came across a 2010 in very good condition for 65k in the US. Car looks really clean with only one owner. The only issue is the Mileage. Its 50k miles too much.?

    Those of you who own this car, what is your opinion?

    I'm only half way there, but there are people here who've put that much mileage on their Calis. I'd get a thorough PPI. Check the service records for issues, especially with the hardtop convertible and transmission sensors. It's a lot of car for only 65K.

    I’ve got a 2011 with 35,000+ miles I’ve put 14000 on it in less than 2 years.
    Never tracked. No problems except a window motor gear failure. Covered in new power warranty.
    I love i, buy it, get the warranty, drive it.

    The California is a modern GT. GTs, unlike raw supersports cars, are purpose built for long runs. For this reason, GTs generally have more mileage on the clock than supersports cars. It can handle mileage and tracking. If you were looking for a Lexus, Mercedes, BMW, would the 50.000 miles be a concern if the car passed a PPI with flying colors and maintenance history checks out?

    Kind regards,

    Nuno.

    There armemvers here that have posted over 100k miles. So assuming it was cared for and fluids changed regularly and a ppi check out the only really skeletons in the closet are top issues, DCT sensor issues and engine mounts.

    Seems with the introduction of this generation of Ferrari and above reliability and comfort are significantly improved as well as reduced required maintainance parts. Though sure seems like when you DO need parts they are quite spendy.
