2008. Bought it CPO with30k on it. No issues at all. All maint done here at the house. Besides the alignments its only been in the shop once. That was about 3 weeks ago for an A/C diagnostic(s) with an evacuation and refill. Will it go another 100k? more than likely. The weak link is gonna be the timing chain and guides. Chain is an easy fix where as the guides are a little more labor intensive. We plan to keep it . Not very fast or agile but an excellent highway machine.

2006 R500, but recently sold it. The costs of keeping it in pristine condition was outweighing itís value/use.

162,500 I don't know about the first 60,00 but the balance has all been put on running around town. Up until a recent engine light for a lean left bank all I have had to do is change the oil. Oh and it is a beast in the snow!

Got our R500 in Dec of 2005 I think.. or was it Dec of 06? Anyway, 147k on the clock, wife loves it and even though she's looked at newer vehicles, there is no getting her to change. About to swap out both front drive shafts. True snow tires for the winter in Michigan and like jmedeiros said, this thing loves winter!
