We purchased our 2013 3.6R back in November 2015 as our snow/ice/dog-hauler vehicle to use as needed. It has done everything we have asked it to do and more, requiring nothing but routine maintenance from me. We have taken it from 25,500 miles at acquisition to 40,300 miles during our 2.5 years of ownership.

I just sold my daily driver for the past 9.5 years - my 2005 Jaguar S-Type sedan. While I will definitely miss it for the great highway cruiser that it is, our 3.6R can do so much more and provides me with more headroom and legroom as well (I am 6-foot-7). It will be interesting to see how our 3.6R does as my daily driver.

Thanks for asking. I am really enjoying it and rarely miss my S-Type these days. Now at 42,500 miles, our 3.6R has become the family workhorse. We did a 300-mile round trip yesterday to pick up a 16-month-old, 125-pound female Irish Wolfhound puppy who still has quite a bit of growing to do. With both rear seats down and several Harbor Freight moving blankets covering the rear cargo area, there was plenty of room for the puppy as well as for our 12-year-old male English Cocker Spaniel. Cruising at around 80 mph on I-40 / I-85 in both directions in 90+ degree heat, my wife and I were quite comfortable while the dogs spread out and snoozed during most of the trip. The utilitarian capabilities of the cabin design combined with the power and durability of the 3.6R / 5EAT drivetrain is what initially pointed me to this vehicle back in 2015. Sure glad I found a good one and grabbed it.

By all means, upgrade to the 3.6R / 5EAT combination. Within 30 seconds of starting a test-drive of one, you will fully understand why.

And depending upon how long you have been gone from Cary, you may not recognize it these days. The entire Cary / Apex / Holly Springs area now deals with the same traffic jams that have plagued Raleigh and Durham for many years.
