Hopefully NOT a ridiculous question but here it goes. I'm close to getting a 2008 430 and would like to be reassured that taking trips form Los Angeles / Las Vegas isn't considered a little much to risk getting broke down on the 15 Fwy along the way. ( Approx. 270 Miles each way ) I drive there 4-5 Times and year and NO i don't plan on using it often but I'd love to take it a few times.
I tried to find any posts on "long drives / road trips" and failed.
I'm very much looking fwd to getting the car and enjoying it as much as possible. I currently own a 2013 SL-550
You did well to ask. I've been doing much longer trips with my F430 than 270 Miles without never having an issue. Some trips up to the North of Germany, with more than 600 miles, were done at constant high speed. The F430, when well maintained and a good history, is a very reliable car and you should have no issues with 4/5 trips of 550 miles each per year.
Good luck with your choice,
