Check oil at LEAST once a week and drive it like youve nicked it every now and again. They need it to clear all the carbon deposits. Throttle reset== mar on 90 sec off for 90 sec start then idle 15 mins DONT TOUCH THROTTLE then thrash it for a good 10 mile down the M/WAY.

The 2.5 V6 is the most reliable of the range. If you are going in for an Automatic, the Q-System is more reliable than the selespeed offered with the T- Spark models. My car is a silver 156 2.5 V6 Q-system and its never let me down. Service it, do the regular oil changes on time and it will never give you problems. You take care of the car, the car takes care of you.
