I am looking at a 2005 XT with a turbo. 27000 miles and in good shape, but the turbo is a question of reliability.

    I see a lot of this make in the shop for repairs at fairly low mileage as compared to other brands!! Not turbo related either. Just saying.
    Lot of leakng oil and coolant, head gasket/valve cover problems.
