    Although mentioned here and there on FerrariChat.com, I don't think this long term review has received the attention it should. Any active user on FerrariChat.com has heard it all before, but still a good long read.

    Edmunds bought a new 2001 550 in early 2002. As of December 2004 they have only put 4,481 miles on it, but there have been over 20 rather detailed and lengthy write-ups on the experience.

    Overall I think their experience has been good, but it does highlight the typical Ferrari QA issues and Dealership/FNA inefficiencies.

    Great read. Didn't realize the gas mileage was that low....6.6! That's nuts.

    What are they doing with their gas mileage ? !!! I have had my 1999 550 for just over a year, and have put almost 5K on it. Overall gas mileage is just uder 15 mpg. Some of their other gripes etc. ring true, but overall mine has been better than theirs.
