Be careful. This car may have a single row timing chain. If it does you are looking at having to replace the chain every 30,000 miles or convert to a double roll chain. Proceed with caution!

We have only a few units of these models here, and they are not popular for 2 reasons:

1. higher road tax for being 3.8 litres; and
2. heavy consumption of fuel (which would most likely catch your attention).

For those 2 reasons above, the second price is very very cheap as it demands a buyer. Unlike other models, sellers are in demand.
