I'd check the front rotors as they are very expensive to replace on this model. Also make sure that both turbos are functioning properly. Air flow and other sensors have a way of going bad around this mileage as well. Have a diagnostic run to check out any fault codes. I would also check out the drivetrain and listen for a "howl" from the rear when driving as that is usually a sign that wheel bearings are going bad. Repair of both rear bearings can run very high as well.Originally posted by d21212@Dec 24 2004, 10:48 PM
Thinking about this black, sports seated 87k mi 2001 2.7, manual trans, as a daily driver, for under $17,000. Maintenance records are incomplete (for example, no info if timing belt's been changed). A lovely car, but what exactly should I fear? I'll do a compression check and the usual due diligence exam...what should I be worried about?

Good luck! If this car checks out, you won't be disappointed.
