Does anyone on this forum own a 348, as I'm considering purchasing either an early one (would be left hand drive) or a Porsche 993 :evil: , and would be grateful to receive some advice with regards reliability and running costs.
A number of our users have these. Bob348, Bazil, Justynb frafreda, and nico.
Really there are not in major problems other than the regular maintance. Because it is a Ferrari it is high. But the 993 engine is a bitch to access and always has to be dropped to be worked on. This is a downside as you cannot do the work yourself.
Take a look at the "Tech Tips" section by clicking in the main naviagtion above. The last two tips are both for a 348. Hope this helps. Welcome to the site.
shure that a 993 is a good car and certainly better quality made...but you will never have same pleasure like You could have in a 348....
I was wondering too before to buy my 348 ....maybe a porsche ??? and I have no regrets...I have done about 20 000 km in 2 years and I had to make myself : the cluch (the car is 70000km now !), the AC compressor, and the starter. i think that is common on 348 and dont cost a lot...One thing more to choose the Ferrari: The melody of the V8 !
