Maintenance Service and Pre/Post-Track Inspection

From the outset all McLaren Performance Cars are designed to be a pleasure to own as well as to drive, with customer satisfaction always being our primary objective. To that end, McLaren automobiles have been engineered specifically to be easy to repair and competitive to service.

Our innovative approach can be seen across a range of examples. Despite its high performance, the M838T engine only requires servicing every 10,000 miles (15,000 km), and all the main service parts can be accessed from the base of the engine, reducing service complexity and time. Because the unique carbon MonoCell is so resilient, all the exterior panels could be made of materials such as SMC and polypropylene; just as light, but much more affordable to replace.

You won't see your McLaren in our service center often because reliability is as important for McLaren in its road cars as it is for McLaren's Formula One cars, so superior reliability is engineered into each model from the outset. Intelligent engineering reduces the chance of a failure. For example, the conductive aluminum runners set into the MonoCell reduce the number of wires and connectors required by the car's electronic architecture.

However, when you do bring your car in to McLaren San Francisco we will strive to provide you with the same level of attention the Formula One cars get in a pit-stop; rapid, highly skilled, and with the right part ready and waiting. Because for any McLaren - road or race car - time spent in the garage is time wasted. And if racing is one of the activities you wish to pursue with your McLaren, we can also provide pre- and post-track inspection services and assist with finding you transportation service for your car to the track of your choice.
