    Only the original non-direct 2.2's had the issue with the chains. The lubrication nozzle would get clogged up by the paper oil filter and lead to failure, but this is not an issue for the newer Direct.

    In theory the chain should last the life of the engine mate, however I know some people look at getting it changed at around 100K just for piece of mind...
