    It seems newer mclarens have really stepped up their game in terms of reliability

    I owned 2 so far and both are fantastic, most issues are small electrical gremlins that fix them selves, great cars.

    570S Spyder and now a 720S Spyder, 10,000 miles - and far fewer issues than my AMGGTR tbh.... I changed dealers and the service is now excellent - so if you can buy one

    I have owned 2 McLarens so far, a 2018 570 Spyder and a 2019 720s.
    Mechanically I have had zero issues with the car.
    On all other fronts McLaren is a quality control disaster.
    My Spyder had all sorts of electrical issues, from problems with stereo system muting itself, to doors not opening and car not starting unless I did a magical dance with the keys so they get recognized.
    On the 720s the story is not any better.
    I have over 9000 miles on her, bought new at the dealership. I have had a windshield replaced, and 3 glass door roof panels replaced. I have had parking sensor fail. The stereo occasionally likes to reset itself at the most inopportune times. I have had the drivers door hinge replaced. The paint on these cars is total ****, so thin that if you sneeze wrong you will get paint damage.
    Sometimes when I am in the car the key fob is not recognized to start, so I have to move the key around near the steering wheel for it to recognize. What the hell is the use of a wireless fob if it doesn’t work wirelessly?!?
    All that aside, it’s an insanely fun car to drive, I just wish QC was better. Thankfully my car spent the better part of 3 months at the dealership during the fall and winter months getting its issues resolved vs. the driving season.
