Dealer said there is no reason for it to fail before 150k km. That should be almost 94k miles. They were referring to the turbo specifically as this is perhaps the most expensive part of the engine that is prone to fail if not maintained properly and consistently (i.e. good oil and maintenance, allowing for warm-up and all the other known techniques). Generally speaking, even with proper maintenance anything can happen above 100k miles, by which unfortunately most owners have ran out of warranty (factory warranty at least), unless you drive your car A LOT! I'm at 54k kms (34k miles) at the moment, got the car for 3 years, not a single issue so far. Factory warranty expires in exactly 1 year. Anyway each car is different, they can slightly differ even in hp so why wouldn't they also differ in lifespan..

35,000 here I have had it since 32,000.

Just cleaned my valves last night. Didn't really need it as bad as others I have seen.

2008 & 72k miles and hard starting issues when cold. Replaced the plugs and issue still exists. Not sure if its the coils/battery or dirty valves...
