I'm 9 months in to owning a 2018 RRS SC v8. Just returned from a 3K trip from OK to Cali with a number of side trips. The RRS was nothing short of spectacular. It is so comfortable, powerful and a joy to drive on the highways, backroads, and trails. I owned a 99 Discovery, so I knew the inherent challenges of owning a Land Rover, but to me the rewards far outweigh the risks of the vehicle. One of the key things to any vehicle ownership is the ability of the local dealer to take care of the issues. I had an absolute disaster experience with my previous Jeep Grand Cherokee and it leaves a really bad taste in regarding the brand. Back in the late 90's and early 2000's, Land Rover treated customers like Kings. Not quite the same anymore, but still a very good experience. So far, I like my local dealer and I know that will go a long way towards keeping me a happy customer.
