I dont know where I got volvo from lol

but still, not every ferrari is a dino v6

and every/any engine has its good and bad points

for example, the 3.1L GM v6 is known to develop a head gasket problem at around 65.000 miles, mine is at the closer end of twice that with no problems, and at the same time, some people have had the engine blow up on them

same goes for any engine, its only a hunk of metal peices anyway

But, to counter your claims on reliability, my dads Alfa motor is the Ferrari Dino V6 in essence. Meaning that Ferraris have good reliability. The only reason you're giving them a bad rap is because you only see the ones that don't get driven being broken down. Well, thats bullshit, because if you buy a car and don't drive it like its meant to be, then yes, the parts will get weak, and it will eat itself. Maybe you should look at statistics or something. I don't know. But Ferraris that get driven like they're supposed to be are the ones that stay together. And thats true with any car. No matter what the automaker.

Does "[getting] driven like they're supposed to" mean garaged every time its not on the road, including 6 months of winter and all days where theres even a small puddle on the roads? No Ferrari gets driven like its supposed to unless its on the track. I'd love to see a Ferrari last 200k miles being daily driven.
