I have this vehicle since it's new.
However, it came with a nikasil V8
instead of alusil V8. Gradually the
high sulphur of US fuel started to
cause problems with the engine. Now it
needs engine replacement, $9k plus
labor. If you own one with an alusil
engine, you should buy a lottery
ticket. If you are thinking about
getting a used one, you must make sure
what type of engine it has. Check the
engine block numbers before buying it.
It's a very serious problem!
choice of nikasil and alusil engines.
test the engine with US fuel before
shipping it here.
