It looks like 2k per year when new. Maybe double it to 4k per year when old. Even then it's not that bad. It won't make me homeless.

I thought that Tata Motors was going to fix all the reliability issues? Or was it Ford? I am sure they fixed Jaguar too.

Most insurers consider anything land rover to be uninsurable from a warranty perspective.
Yup, we do warranties for an enormous range of vehicles, RR is one of our very few exclusions.

Yup, RR is the ultimate in bragging rights - "I can afford both a very expensive vehicle, and a very expensive mechanic, which I have on retainer".

Nice to ride in, both my boss and a cow-orker bought used ones (a year or two old, I keep telling them they should buy a warranty from our warranty unit, which they know it doesn't sell to RR owners lol) and they're nice, but if you're looking to upgrade from an old used Taurus, I'm going to say you're getting in over your head cost-wise.

Taurus?

According to MSN they are pretty solid. That's what I use.

Well whatever. I'm starting to think about a Harley instead of the RR or Corvette. Cheaper and more badass.
