225km still no problems
im at 225,000 kms no issues yet, purrs like a kitten.
Just changed plugs & wires tho - looked like it was still on the originals - plugs were all worn bad and 1 wire burnt to a crisp inside...
other stuff - new ball joints & timing belt around 180K, overall the car hasnt cost me a lot in repairs.
I'm starting to feel like i'm pushing my luck though, looking now to upgrade to a 2005 wagon - with the duratec 2L no worries with that engine right?
