I've had to have just about every seal replaced, rear differential, rear axle, both valve cover gaskets, etc. I have had the car since it was brand new and I know it has been perfectly maintained. I love the car, but unfortunately, the BMW I had before this, puts this car to shame with almost twice the miles. -
