ought at 45,000, now have 77,000. have replaced turbo, gas tank, power steering pump, transaxle, rack and pinion on right side, head gasket leak, #3 cylinder coil and spark plug, and now the timing chain kit needs replacing ?

Best Features

very powerful engine with turbo and so, so gas milage. Nice ride on smooth roads, not for back roads at all. Wonderful transmission, no feeling at all when shifting.

Worst Features

Buy only the V6
