I was wondering how good is the car overall and the motors reliability. I believe from my searching that this motor uses a timing belt not chain though Im not sure.
I really do hate timing belts, but I could deal I suppose, just hate the thought of an engine being driven by a belt.
Anyway, any thoughts on this car? It looks really nice and the price is right.
Thanks for any help
