How Often Do Ferraris Need to Be Serviced?

Ferrari Service

While the precise maintenance schedule will vary by model, you should generally have your Ferrari serviced or at least inspected every year. Ferraris are world-class, precision-built vehicles, and achieving incredible performance is dependent on all aspects of the vehicle being in perfect working order. Therefore, yearly inspections and preventative maintenance are vital — not only for getting the most out of your Prancing Horse, but also for maintaining its resale value.

Ferrari Maintenance Schedule

Different models will have maintenance plans, but a typical Ferrari maintenance schedule will look like this:

  • Year 1: Replace the engine oil and oil filter, flush brake fluid and bleed calipers, and replace the in-cabin air filter. Check gear oil and hydraulic fluid, topping off fluids as necessary. Check for leaks. Check all indicator lights. Conduct a visual inspection of the brake pads and discs. Inspect the parking brake system and perform a component check on the front and rear suspension. Finally, your Ferrari will be road tested to ensure everything is in good working order.
  • Year 2: A repeat of all first-year checks, plus auxiliary belt replacement, engine inspection, and checking the tightness of gearbox mounting fasteners.
  • Year 4: A repeat of all second-year checks, plus the replacement of spark plugs and another auxiliary belt replacement.

Generally, this maintenance schedule will need to be repeated for the life of the vehicle. Annual or even seasonal inspections outside of a given Ferrari’s prescribed maintenance schedule are also highly recommended. It’s important to note that service intervals will vary depending on miles driven as well. Additionally, some models require additional maintenance procedures; for instance, the F355 generally requires engine-out service every five years.

Since every new Ferrari warranty includes 7 years of maintenance, there’s no reason to neglect maintaining your vehicle — especially since this warranty coverage is tied to the vehicle and not the owner.
