Very few people have good things to say about the V6. > If she gets the car: MAKE SURE THE TIMING BELT GETS CHANGED WHEN DUE. Since when has a 2.3 litre engine been a V6? The V6 is a 3 litre, and I don't think it was ever inflicted upon a 9-3. The 2.3L engine is rock-solid, and has no timing belts, it has chains. Dave Hinz
