bought mine with 71k about a year ago. now has 96k and only have replaced an egr valve. does burn 1 quart between oil changes but from reading here, typical. great gas mileage 25 on highway. great punch when you need it. just replaced brakes all around for 350.00 with ceramic pads and the egr valve was about 200.00. I would buy another one.
comfort, pick up, huge, great gas mileage
other than 1 quart every 2 to 3k none. i've been told that it is very common in the northstar. i'll invest the 4.00 for a quart for a great reliable and fun to drive boat.
