2001 Ferrari Modena • 28,000 miles

Hello, can a driver cause a damage to a engine if he doesn't rev the engine up to the red line?

Thank you.

THEY CAN SEE DAMAGE FROM ENG OVER REV SUCH AS STRETCHED RODS. But THEY CANNOT SAY WHEN THAT DAMAGE WAS DONE. UP TO YOU BUT I WOULD CONCIDDER LEGAL ACTION AGAINST THE COMPANY. MAY COST MORE TO PROVE AND RECOVER THEN YOU PAID. BUT 110 DOLLARS TO REPLACE A ENG IN A FERRARI IS IMPOSSIBLE. MAYBE THEY JUST CHARGED YOU PART OF THE LABOR. EITHER WAY MY OPINION YOU HAVE BEEN ROBBED. WHAT YOU DO ABOUT IT IS UP TO YOU BUT THIS IS NOT RIGHT.

They got a used engine for $16000.00 from exotic auto recycling.
Cost to remove and inspect engine = $2660.00
And what about the rev limiter?

Merry Christmas. Thank you again.

Hi I understand what you are saying. I amsorry they done this to you. However when you ewnt a 143.000 dp; ar car all rules and regs are diff then your standard rental agreements. They have done what they have done. Now you have to deceide what your recourse will be.
