Agreed! It's a beautiful sedan, but the R-Design starts at $42K USD for a 4-cylinder FWD vehicle before adding desirable options. It'll be interesting to see how they are priced coming off lease...

Hi Reinnie,

Are the quotes covering current mileage + 100,000 miles, or up to 100,00 miles? If it's the latter, how many miles per year does that work out for you?

I don't think I could wait until 15,000 miles to change the oil just out of nervousness. Do you top it off in between oil changes to compensate for oil burn?

What brand(s) do you use?
