He has a three year warranty so I wouldn't worry about the engine. Our wagon has just got to 2100 km in 5 weeks (mainly driven by wife locally) and all is great. The engine has justed started to loosen up and I gave it a bit of stick this past Sunday. It's a bloddy good engine, smooth, quick kickdown and the right noise when angry, even for a wagon. I don't miss a V8 as much but it would be nice to HAVE THE OPTION ! Only problem is the dog hair blows forward when you let our long-haired "mans best friend" have some air at 120kph!!
