Good to GO

Have always liked the styling, but never wanted to buy the 90's RRs for fear of build quality. Got a good deal and needed a winter vehicle. Had a LandCruiser previously and the RR gets much better gas mileage; more comfortable ride as well. Really enjoy the unique styling. I have only had normal maintenance so far, brakes, rear bushing, oil, winter tires, etc. The dealership is a little pricy, but not much more than Toyota. I put snow/all seasons on this winter and it performed flawlessly. I have owned 2 e320's, an XJR, a landcruiser, an acura CLS, a grand cherokee, and a cts-v. The interior build quality is the best I have ever seen or owned. And this is coming from a car guy.
Extremely smooth engine and transmission. Height adjustment. Commanding driving position. Hill decent. Above average stereo. Huge gas tank. Highway ride is unreal.
The bluetooth system is not clear, which is disappointing. It's really tough to make business calls. Cooled seats would be nice at this price point. Cylindar deactivation on highway. Tires are hard to find and too pricy.
