Sounds as if my 03 has not had these problems,I have seen the under warranty records and no mention of anything other than petty for the dealer issues.

Hi you all out there in W8 land, I got my car two years ago with 132000km under the bonnet and now got 162k with no major problems to report. The only thing showing under warranty was a belt replacement.
A fan running on incident from two weeks ago solved itself, the car is going very strong.

Good to hear that nothing major had happen to some of us. My plan are keeping the car and find some good deals on extended warranty ASAP.

Just under 51,000 no mechanical problems at all-oil changes every 5,000 with Mobil 1 :)

M1ck did your car VRM used to be 'condor' or something remember looking at it when it was for sale if its the same car?
