    Default 3.2 V6

    What are the main things to be looking out for when buying 1 of these privately?? I'm looking at a 3.2 V6 Auto with 70,000 miles on the clock. Should the timing chain or anything need done now??

    Its a belt not a chain so if it hasn't been changed yet I would consider it soon. It should be done every 40k ideally. I'm sure others will be along soon too
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
