Hi all- bit of a different question for long term owners- i bought a 2008 range rover when vehicle popularity was very low due to horrible reliability etc. At the time Ford owned and needed to produce a better vehicle. Long story short the model years 2006-2010 are now reported to be the very best in reliability. I still have mine with 110k. I do required maintenance but its been Very good to me. I like idea of buying a tesla ie X or Y. But i like to pay cash and keep my cars 10 years etc. How are older cars holding up ie paint, switches, suspension and other components. Im ok to pay the large price and the gas savings is great/reduced maintenance I just dont want to have to repaint car and change major components in future.
Appreciate any insight! Thank you
