There needs to be some standards of customer care instilled in the dealers.
Independents need to have access to diagnostic tools.
Decrease the cost of parts to reflect the reality of what they are worth.
While I love the idea of the 'Pure McLaren' events and McLaren exclusive track days, the costs are absurd. If they want to involve more owners with the company events, lower the price.
That's just a start.
As far as the ownership experience goes, mine has been brilliant.
There was no way I was buying new, because of depreciation. I found the exact spec I would have ordered at McLaren Houston. They treated me like a valued customer and I was able to buy 1000 mile car and save $60K.
Reliability wise..... spot on. It's done trips, track days and the day to day. I had a soft close door issue and my local dealer took good care of me. The dealer had to update software and had issues getting the car to take it, which was a bit of a pain.
Service: Annual checks are basically an oil change (year 1) and some checks. Dealer wanted ~$2K. That is insane. I own a shop and we did the service. Parts were less than $100. We are currently working on getting a Mac dx tool. After that, we are good to go.
So far, the ownership experience has been great. I love the car. The performance is better than anything else out there. The looks are proper exotic, and the car just makes everyone smile...... especially me!
