I will have a look at an 2004 that have had the engine replaced.
Will certainly check if dephasert have been changed. Thanx for that input.
I thought it was only the diesel engines that have had serious problems, but it seem like quite a few petrols have had engines replaced to, due to bearing/lubrication failiurs.
Has there been any improvements done on the petrol engines during phase1? Did phase2 cars get the same engine?
I bided on an 2008 with the reliable Nissan engine, but unfortunately my economy did not allow me to get it. So any advice on how to find an reliable petrol is highly appreciated!
