Recently I’ve had a few McLaren owners suggest putting together a short blog on the various tips and tricks that we have picked up over the last decade across the multiple McLaren’s we have owned (see: Our McLarens Reliability Report). I had another McLaren owner suggest that we must be doing something special as we seem to have very few issues with any of the cars.
There are a number of things we do routinely that I believe make a difference in limiting any potential issues. The list however isn’t unique to the McLaren’s, it’s the same for Ferraris, Porsches, etc:
Despite all the time we have spent and mileage we have covered in a range of McLarens, I really haven’t discovered that many tricks. The few are:
In general, the McLarens (with the exception of the P1 and its “Iron Lung” battery charger) have all been very straight forward cars to own and care for. Almost all the tips fall into a general common-sense bucket that you learn over a few years of supercar ownership. The tricks aren’t many but the nose lift one is very useful.
Any other suggestions that should be added to the list?
