gurneyeagle500 Posted July 16, 2021 Report Share Posted July 16, 2021 Hi There! Thank you for including me in your wonderful group. I am a longtime enthusiast who cut his teeth on an early Nissan 280Z, Triumph Spitfire, two Gen 1 RX-7s, Toyota Supra, Porsche 944, Nissan 370Z, and currently drive a 2018 Audi TT RS. I've recently retired to Jacksonville, Florida, USA and have begun researching my next car. The introduction of the Emira has me seriously considering Lotus for the first time. I have always admired the cars and was always a huge fan of the race team. With the greatest respect for all the longtime owners, I admit to having some concerns over reliability, parts availability, cost of service, and the small dealer network in the US. Are those concerns realistic? While I do not expect "Toyota/Honda" reliability, I really don't want to purchase a car that is a constant source of aggravation because of niggling problems and long waits for even the simplest wear parts. Again, are these concerns realistic? My hope is the infusion of capital and technology by Geely will eliminate such thoughts. As owners, especially those of you in the US, what are your experiences? As their last ICE car, how far into the future will Lotus support the car? Do any of you share the same concerns? Your opinions and experience are greatly appreciated. Cheers!
