We leased this car in 1997, drove it till the lease was up then purchased it in 2001.
Without a doubt the most reliable car I ever owned.
It now has 387,000 miles and running strong.
The only things I have had to do to it was the AC compressor which died around 360K, and the muffler/plumbing.
Crankcase sensor, had to replace it 3 times, but not for 3 years now.
An idiot (last cc sensor failure) convinced me I needed a valve job, so OK, 270K, go ahead.
He called me to come look at something.
I went, he showed me the clyinders, and you could still see the original cross hatching, and no ridges!
AMAZING, that 4.0!
PLESE bring it back with the 4.0 and I'll buy till I die!
