Faults:

Absolutely nothing! If the car is maintained, it will run forever!

General Comments:

I absolutely love my Silver Seraph! This is the newest in RR innovation, and they certainly haven't spared any expense on it. The car has all the "classic" Rolls features to it, but with the modernized look. This car has a back end similar to a Lincoln Continental, which is one of my only complaints about the car. My only other complaint is that the nearest dealership is about an hour and a half away.

The seats are the most comfortable I have ever sat in. The V-12 engine give the car an enormous amount of get-up and go, especially for a car this size. The amount that I saved by buying a gently driven car as opposed to a new one could be used to buy a new Lexus!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Nissan Maxima to a Rolls Royce Silver Seraph. Talk about an upgrade.

8/10 for service costs! Pretty impressive if you're comparing to your former Nissan!

Maybe the 8/10 doesn't come from the pure dollar amount of a repair and instead the value of it. Like a $3,000 repair for a Rolls is nothing, but if it was for a Focus or something I probably have a big issue and consider getting rid of it.

And if you have the cash to own a Rolls, then the maintenance portion is probably not even an issue. 1% of 25,000 is 250 while 1% of 2,500,000 is $25,000. As most of us know that $250 in repairs for your average car is expected and could get a 10/10 for that. And even for a Rolls. not many repairs will go over $25,000 a trip.
