Enjoy the 6000 STE. Replaced head gaskets at about 170000. Don't know the actual mileage, as the speedo cable gave way @ 150k. Not something to toss $ into.
Having issue now with no start. Last week it ran poorly on the way home. Upon opening the hood, the coil wire was arcing to the gray connector of the coil wiring. The connector was damaged from the head gasket rebuild job & glued together. I thought the coil was the culprit. Replaced the coil & heavily taped the connector. The car ran for 10 minutes & quit to never start again. I exchanged the coil. Still no start. I'm about to change the ignition module, thinking the arcing coil fried the module. Still surprised it ran 10 minutes then quit though.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
