    My car

    I've always admired RRs,I've always wanted to own one. I couldn't believe my luck when I got the chance to have one as a company car. SO far so good but things started to go wrong pretty soon after I'd ordered the 3.0TD SE ('56 plate). The car was delivered with the wrong colour carpets, a busted CD player, water in the rear light cluster and CLOTH SEATS WHICH AREN'T EVEN AN OPTION YOU CAN SPECIFIY!!! Weeks later the car was finally delivered with leather, the right carpet etc. in the 1yr+ I've had the car it's barely gone a month without a trip back to the dealer: phone kit, steering mounted controls, ventilation system and arm rest have all had to be fixed. Major problems have included the car getting stuck at access height, mechanical pulley in engine (2 weeks to fix)and continual problems with light clusters taking on water/foglamps falling out of housing. Unfortunately it doesn't seem that this car, despite it's capabilies, can actually cope with off-road conditions. Lovely car, terrible reliability and useless dealers. I'm so glad it's not my own money but could do without the hassle and am counting down the months until i can get something Japanese!

    My car

    I bought the RR with 40,000 miles when it was 2 years old. It cost me £32k. It was over £60k new. I find it fantastic value for money as it is very capable on the road, the equipment levels are superb and it is very practical. You cannot get a better car for this money. The main gripe I have with this car is that I cannot get the mpg below 17.8 no matter what I do and so it costs a fortune to run. If your mileage is reasonable then this car is hard to beat!

    My car

    I have owned my car since new (Sept 04 ) I have done 48k mls and can honestly say that this is the best all round car that I have ever had. I have owned appx 10 new cars in the last 12 years ranging from a Laguna Estate to a Bentley GTC. This R R is has been a real pleasure to own and the best all rounder in all of the others. It has never let me down, it is a great driving experience where ever we go - alone or with family, its had its little warranty issues like having had a rear light unit changed because of the seal failing and a slight fault on the power steering pump, but nothing compared to some of the other makes ( some costing twice the price ) and these bits have been done while in for a service so not had to go out of my way. I am currently about to place an order for a 3.6 TD for the 1st of March and am looking forward to the new car. I`ve looked at other 4x4`s - Mercs, BM`s, Toyota, Q7`s but somehow see better all round value for money in the R R. Sure the odd person will suffer more failures than others but I think that Ford have done a very good job of sorting things out with the car, and the dealerships ( even though I`ve read complaints ) are no worse than any of the others and much better than most I`ve dealt with. I will still own different makes of cars while owning the R R but if the new ones anywhere near as good as this one has been I will own it for as long. From a Very Satisied Customer.
