I have had my RR for 8 years. I really love the styling and look of the car. When running it's a fantastic car to drive and very comfortable. Problems have been numerous and a typical trip to the dealer is $1000+. Have replaced my air suspension system, car ran hot on me so I replaced the radiator, had to have my head gasket replaced ($9k) from running hot, heater core replaced twice. I typically keep a close eye on it and oil change regularly. It's a joy to drive if you have the $$'s to dish out or find a good cheaper mechanic.
Smooth drive, nice amenities. Love the look of the automobile. The air shocks for getting in and out of the car. The roominess of the car. It rides like a luxury SUV, which you would hope for the price.
Cup holder is too small for most drinks. Lack of acceleration. Once it gets going it rides well, but does drags a little on acceleration. Gas mileage is not the greatest (12 - 15mpg).
