They can claim all the low volume stuff they want...but another 2003 Discovery and Tata will close them down and flush the toilet with them. That is what scares me about the Evoque...how IS this Quality? Lot's of PR bs...smoke and mirrows, but how are they after 75,000miles?

I purchased my MY11 RRS HSE (GT Limited) a year ago. So far, it has been a great experience. Had one steering vibration issue, and it was because of a Michelin tire being deformed.
I know when you have problems, its frustrating beyond all reason. My experience with a RAV4 in the past made me angry enough to swear off all Toyotas forever.
Since that time, I've we've had a GMC Denali, Caddi Escalade, Audi Q5, MBenz ML350 and now the Rover. None of these have given me any unreasonable grief in the last 12 years. Just been lucky I guess.

I'm new to this forum. Currently looking for an 08 or 09 RRS (Supercharged) w/ 45K miles at the most. I'm in the Bay Area (San Francisco). Could anyone give me some idea as to what I should expect in terms of dealer price. Is it also normal for dealers to charge anywhere between 3-4K extra to certify the vehicle. Anything else I should be aware of?
One of the dealers I saw made a big effort to push the '12 RRS, but via leasing, which is something I had not thought about. It's a lot more car, insurance, dmv fees etc ... Despite a low down pay (5K) the monthly payments would still be 1k> and I'll still have to deal with the residual at the end of the 3 yr terms. Given my price range, I think I rather stick to a used 08 or 09. Thoughts or and advice.
Thanks in advance,

Regarding the differences between the pre 2010 and current models, there is a huge difference in interior design and electronics. Given the less than stellar reliability of these units, I would get new. Many of the chassis components start showing issues in the 40-50k mileage range; some are minor (bushings, etc), but some are expensive, and not always covered by extended warranties. Some issues, such as steering shimmy at high speed are often declined by dealers because of "in spec" guidelines.
Also, for '10 models and up, the non SC version of RRS is almost the same in terms of power to the older SC versions.
I would price out a new non SC RRS. It would be a couple hundred cheaper per month on a lease (per their lease deals advertised in Nov/Dec).

I am looking into leasing a range rover hse, 36000 miles for three years with little down. Do you have an idea what the residual and money factor should be? What's a ballpark monthly payment that I can expect $1700? I have heard of other individuals getting deals of $1200. Is this realistic? Thanks.

Hi, I leased a RR HSE with lux package in 2006 and 2009 with no money down each time and for terms of 36 months. In 2006 I paid $999/mo plus tax and in 2009 I paid $1274 plus tax. I didnt release again this year when I turned the vehicle in (economy and all that) but I did hear interest rates were up significantly. $1700 sounds high though you should be sub $1500.
My dealer was Northpoint in Atlanta in 06 and Hennessey Buckhead Atlanta in 09.
Hope this helps.
