New T182T

New T182T

Hello COO,
I'm a longtime 182 driver (182Q) and planning to buy a demo T182T with 150 hrsTT Glass Panel G1000. Exciting stuff but I am concerned about this new technology having some bugs in it as this is first year of production. Can't seem to get a straight answer from dealer as to service of aircraft to date, only assurance that warranty coverage will take care of any problem so why worry?
Any suggestions?
Also is a Subchapter S corp better than LLC for ownership of new plane?
Appreciate help
Jack Schulte

I would have your dealer fax copies of the log book entries. All work should be documented whether under warranty or not.

Re: New T182T

Hi Jack,

i'm in the same boat, buying a 182 demo with 90 hours.  The plane has been "Completely Detailed" by the selling FBO but I wonder the same question.  I take delivery Friday so I'll post my findings and hopefully excitement. 

Andre,

I looked long and hard at Cirrus but was more comfortable with technology I understood.  I've only flown upperwing Cessna's so the Cirrus, though I enjoyed the flights, was a difficult decision for me to make.  The Cessna is la lilltle less expensive also.  I'm following Cirrus tos ee if the reliablity holds up.  A good friend has one and loves it but I was with him when we lost all of our electronics and it was an interesting time getting back on the ground.  good luck with your decision.

Re: New T182T

Hi Jack,   I am a new t182t owner since july 2004. I have had some avionic problems from the start. negative charge onthe standby battery. cessna has changed some units and the problem seems to have gone away. cessna has been very good about the warranty issues. I love the G-1000 avionics.I was disaponted that the traffic only works in mode S radar areas. Still waiting for XM radio with weather uplink.
