I am new to this and am VERY GRATEFUL to you Cirrus owners and your responses.
I have narrowed my choices to the C400 and the 22Turbo (like nearly everyone else).
My concern is the Avidyne system. I am hearing (even from the salesman at Cirrus) that the Avidyne pane will probably “go out” on me and he told me of customers who had 3 panels go out. On the 3rd failure, Cirrus replaced the panel.
WHile I applaud the customer service, I am buying this plane for efficiency reasons (to fly between LA, Palm Springs and Las Vegas) and don’t want to have problems such as this that makes my plane unavailable. Can you please tell me the problems I can EXPECT with the 22 (avionics and otherwise).
I am hearing that the Cirrus people DO STAND BEHIND their product and rectify problems. I just want to know how many and what type of problems to expect.
Finally, G1000 v. Avidyne. I am hearing that Avidyne may go out of business and that the G1000 product is so much more mainstream…pros and cons of each??
Again, thank you. You guys have been GREAT!!!
