I have had my 210 for about 6 months and 20K. Yes I drive about 40K a year. I have all records for the car since new and to date there has only been routine maintainence and replacement of some wear items...thanks again psfred...

Before my purchase I read many post concerning the potential glowplug issue on this model. It was my understanding that this usually became an problem if you drove the car on many short runs. This would not give the car a chance to reach operating temps and accumulate carbon deposits.

Do you do many short runs?

If so, after you manage this problem, you may consider consistently running a fuel additive and periodically taking some long hauls... Just a thought.
