    Sensor in gear box needs to be replaced! In shop estimates 1.5 weeks. Customer cost $10,000.

    2010 Italia

    This is why you buy a CPO warranty!

    It's a bummer you will be without your car for a week or two and the price tag is painful. I don't think the numbers add up in favor of the extended warranty, though. If it's a 2010 it would have been out of the three year warranty by 2014. The annual price is usually around $4,000 so keeping it covered for that period of time would have cost more money overall.

    I purchased the car Sept 2019, two year CPO if I remember around 8,000$.

    So the warranty has certainly paid for itself.

    That's great to hear. I didn't realize you picked it up recently with the power warranty, you definitely won this battle. My understanding is that the power warranty needs to be renewed each year in order to qualify for the next year, so it's surprising that you could get the power warranty unless it had been maintained each year.

    Good for you.

    David, so sorry to hear about your transmission issue. Hope it gets sorted out quickly. I have been reading too many 458 transmission issue on the forum this month. I think this may be the 3rd. Would you mind sharing some of the symptoms that the transmission started exhibiting. I have a 2013 Italia with 8k miles.

    Actually no symptoms. Started car light came on gear box issues. Car shifted fine in automatic and manual. Did not get message, telling me to stop driving car.
    Since did not receive the message they assume a sensor issue. $10,000 repair to replace bad sensor. I have CPO WARRANTY, so no concern. That simple, if no CPO, I would since drive if just a sensor not waste 10000$
