    Recently I'm reading of issues with 458, GTC4, FF....

    Mine 488 has more than 2 years, 9.000 km and, till today (touching wood), no major issues.
    Just some crackles from the windows that have been solved.

    To me it looks more reliable than 458. But I wanted to know your experience.

    My 458 and now my 488 have performed flawlessly with no failures or imperfections of any kind whatsoever. Simply magnificent cars!

    Just under 9000 and mine's been bulletproof save a few battery issues. 488 has proven to be very reliable and robust otherwise. Still feels brand new. No squeaks or rattles. Highly recommended!

    I have had zero problems with my 488 Spider since buying it new a year ago. I do have to take it in for the air bag recall though, ugh.

    9 months and 1700 miles in and the car remains perfect.
