Miracle upon miracles, I sold my semi clapped 03 sedan, and 20minutes later bought a MINT 04 wagon.
I can't say how happy I am about that.
The 03 was rattly, notched and difficult to shift, suspension crunched when weight transfered, check engine lite wouldn't go out, air bag light on, odd noises, smelled like coolant, mystery mold smells in cab, rebuilt title, the list goes on.
The 04 was woman owned, 100% unmolested, literally drives like a new car. Nary a scratch can be located.
I notice a few changes:
*rear mirrors, door mounted are updated
*dash is updated, tach, speedo, etc
*minor tweaks on steering wheel, like cruise knob
*rear of car, bumper, brake lights
*hood and turbo scoop slightly different
What else is different? Anything I should know about??
Someone please talk to me about the Timing Belt.
112k on the car, and they've got to have been gentle miles, the car is dead nuts perfect, smooth, tight, quiet (can hardly even hear the turbo).
Should I change it now?
Whats the WORST that happens if I just drive it?
--> It breaks while driving? --> what would that mean, other than stranded??
What else should I be on the lookout for???
