I am about to buy a Spider with the 1750cc engine, I believe 2009 and 2010 years.
Are there any 'problems' mechanical or bodywise that I should look out for.
Thanks for any information.
The 1750 is available since 2009 (may i think) to end of june 2010 (building date... selling date may be different, and also some building of on-stock cars were possible untile october 2010), so it has to be either 2009 or 2010.
There are no problems i'm aware of on the 1750, i've been running mine since october 2010 (10Kmiles up to now) including a four days trip return from italy to uk (having quite some fun on the german autobahn i must say) and some track use (Monza, Mugello, Nurburgring), without any serious issue so far. Also, the only major problem of the Spider, which is the roof top "scraping" issue because of the back window should be fixed since MY2008 model.
The only problems i had with the car:
A/C not working/not recognized at start - blinking odometer: solved in 10 minutes, disconnect the battery and reconnect.. done just once, never happened again.
Battery "failure" - but i should say "discharge because of my fault" - didn't use the car for two months and the battery charged dropped to minumum.
Must say it's an amazing piece of a car
