    Front Tires are bad.
    Alignment is off.
    Front axle boot is broken which is throwing grease on the exhaust...theres the smoke.
    Both vavle cover gaskets leaking.
    bolts and nuts missing from turbo.
    oil coming out of timing cover? (i could be misreading that)
    AND...Power steering pump is low. possible leak...

    fml man.

    Wow. There ought to be a lemon law in your state. Look into that. That car is a basketcase or at least sounds like it.

    i'm glad to hear that they're taking care of you. A lot of that stuff would've been easy to "forget to tell you" until after the 2 month warranty was up. Sounds like a decent dealership.... But they should've looked before putting it on the lot.

    the lemon law technically says it has to breakdown 3 times. but being that theres 6 things wrong with it, I think that should warrant it. I should ask my lawywer.

    yeah thats what i was saying sinister. the thing that concerns me is that even though this is being taken care of now, whats gonna happen 1, 2 or 3 years down the road?
