    My article linked below organizes these repairs much better, with a lot more information. It also made Doug DeMuro faint...

      1. 1st model year;
      2. 1st model of a new manufacturer;
      3. low volume production;
      4. Very little prototyping and testing budget;
      5. In-house electronics;
      6. Extremely complicated tech with high priority of performance over repairability or reliability. Kind of a tribute to the best 2000's Audi engineering standards; Toyota manufacturing engineers have heart attacks when they hear of McLaren.
      7. Hand-made;
      8. British.

      What's there to break I say.

      @Jason 2 Mifflin ok buddy i see you are a class act. Why would you buy a used McLaren with many visits to dealer for repairs including replacing the engine and transmission when you could just buy a new one? The new models are much more reliable. Have a great day dumbass.

      You are a double stupid f word. This is nothing more than an expensive garage ornament. Every wonder why any exotic always has low miles. Because they are a garage ornament they are hard to drive and not that fun in the long run. So they sit in a garage collecting dust. Also race cars and reliability do not go together.

        Remember how happy you were when you sold your BMW M5 POS? The owner of that McLaren felt like he won the lottery finding a sucker to buy that McLaren.

        Real question is....are you as dumb as you come off?...or a big act. I have to presume the latter...all about shilling for clicks. Your hook is you make everybody feel better by watching all your f ups.

        Your 'schtick' is what could be descirbed as a parody of the car hobby. You are like Jay Leno's retarded brother..

        But...if you can somehow survive, why not be a f up?

        You have to be dumbocrat

                For $25K plus options, you can buy a brand new Factory Five GTM super car and drop an LS1 in it. It will run circles around the McLAren and you can buy parts at your Chevy dealer oe Pep Boys.

                  Lol, i have a 08 Camry with broken engine mounts which would cost $600 to be like new again which is a lot to me, it has 165k miles and that’s the only thing wrong.

                                      My Dodge has probably had $150.000 in repairs done.... Kidding it's more like $3000.

                                        This is the funniest Hoovie video ever, without even trying, just presenting the facts. I remember Top Gear reviewing this car, being so proud of the technological achievement, yet being critical of it being clinical and artificial compared to the 458. This presentation shows what it's like to actually live with one of those pieces of cutting-edge British engineering. It's like an Alfa Romeo; fantastic when it works, but an absolute nightmare when it doesn't. No wonder they liked it.

I am thinking that your old NSX is err was a dream come true.

                                                    What's amazing is that such cars are designed in this case to go 0-60 in 3.2 secs and 207 mph. Yet the engine and transmission were toast under most likely normal driving conditions for most of its miles. I bet that original owner didn't track the car everyday. Isn't the whole point of a supercar in theory is to drive it hard? That's what's so disgraceful with these things. MP4 isn't the only one. The Italians still can't build a reliable car. Moral of the story. Get a Lexus LFA if you can. Funny how they can figure out how to build a reliable supercar.

Hopefully you will get to drive it a couple days on the 1 year warranty while it’s not sitting in a shop having more stuff fixed! Lol I can’t blame you tho, it’s a Mclaren.

It was amazingly dependable after prexious owner had every flaw fixed. I pledged to properly care for it (as alfa dealear still existed) but as working college kid could not afford it. Traded almost for what I bought it for and got an 86 CRX si. The Alfa was one of the coolest cars i ever owned, rhe Honda probably one of the best i ever owned.
