I not sure on the head gaskets, the engine looks clean for the year. I have noticed it seems to be burning oil by the smoke coming out of the exhaust at acceleration. Its not god awful my start looking for a spare engine just in case. It runs and drives great though for 650.

Took the car on the interstate today briefly. My town has 3 exits off the interstate and its faster to get from one end of town from the other to just jump on and off real quick.



Anyway got it up to 70 besides loud as hell exhaust and wind noise it was very smooth. Didn't have much problem getting to that speed either. I'm gonna slowly beat on it to make sure she can take it.



I bought a roll of carpet in going to use it to try and close off the trunk area to maybe get some of the exhaust noise out of the cabin. So I don't need to yell to have a conversation when I'm not in town.



Pics later tonight.





After driving this the last couple days I dunno know car companies make anything other than awd. Its been snowing like crazy and I kid you not this car is like what snow? My wife had even mentioned "its like I'm driving on dry pavement".

My only problem with awd is that it isn't an option on every car. Not necisary but it sure is nice when you do have it.
