    Very nicely photographed. Not too many miles. What is the reliability of the GM engine? Any areas of concern (electronics, etc.)?

      I'm driving a 2008 9-3 model. Currently has 122,000 miles on it. The engine itself has not given me any problems at all, I just do the normal maintenance. But for about two years I've had a small leak in the radiator (or hoses), but it's too small to be found by the mechanic, while he pressurizes the system. So I keep adding small amounts of coolant. It also has an oil leak, somewhere "near the back side of the engine". Again, it's been managed by checking the oil level and topping it off 9about a quart or two between oil changes) , and a third leak sprung about a year ago in the power steering. None of these leaks are gushers, so it's manageable. I still love the car, it drives great, interior looks good, no rust at all. But I do have low beam light bulbs that burn out about every 3-6 months for some reason, or on occasion the computer will tell me the backup light is defective, while it still works. I still consider these "minor" issues, and see no reason to sell the car. Hoping to get another 60,000 out of it.

    Love it. Best iteration of an admittedly old platform. Except for the super GM-ified interior. YUCK.

    So the either 4 or 6 cylinder is mated to the front wheels? So is it just fooling around with the rear wheels? Video (XWD rated, of course) or it didn't happen.
