My AU1 XR6 has been brilliant so far, never missed a beat. Had 116,000k's when I bought it, now has 148,000k's. Shaping up well but still too soon to tell.
I had an ED Ghia 4.0L. First 3 years, beautiful. 4th year fell apart despite regular maintenance. 2 head gaskets, 3 electric windows, 1 clutch fan and the AC died requiring a full dash-out repair. Had 61,000k's when I bought it, trouble started at 145,000k's, got rid of it (still with problems) at 180,000k's.
EA Ghia owned 6 months. Nothing but trouble. Worst car I've ever had.
Best Ever? An old XA GS, 6cyl 4spd I had 15 years ago. A real shitter but NEVER let me down. Started first hit every time, never had to lay a spanner on it. Fond memories!!
