I bought the vehicle in 2010. It had roughly 130,000 miles on it. Three years later and she has never broken down on me. My only issues are leaking oil from the valve cover gaskets, and the cam seals. A coolant leak from the firewall. Ive noticed rattling from the passenger side rear wheel when going over bumps and the motor mounts are shot which will be replaced very soon.
