Great car. Mine had head gasket failed at 75k but is easily fixed. You may also want to check that pervasive leak at the bottom of the timing gear door. It usually lasts 20K and it needs a gasket and special sealant again. Seems everybody experiences that leak. In my case, oil got to the alternator brushes and caked the graphite with a dead battery and no charge. You might also want to check the alternator brushes (replaceable $75 - 5 minutes) mine went gone at 80K. Change fluids often and enjoy.
