I don't know about this car, but I know turbocars that have had the same turbo for over 200000km at least.. If you know how to handle them (Use good oil, change it often Do NOT shut down the engine directly after using the turbo do NOT use the turbo at all before the engine is up to normal temp and so on) they don't break THAT easy.
