Jeronimo Posted December 16, 2013 Share Posted December 16, 2013 Good day all. I am currently running an 11 year old Alfa 156 2.4 JTD Sportwagon which I have had for 10 years. Quite frankly it has been brilliant, only letting me down once in its 146k miles of travel. I'm now feeling like a change and will give the Alfa to my son who loves 'em too. What to replace it with?? Not an Alfa I fly radio controlled model planes and gliders so need reasonable carrying capacity, and I like some grunt from my motors (Alfa remapped to 181 BHP :D ) So I am considering getting a Legacy 2.5i. As I'm now retired I'm only doing about 4 - 5 thousand miles a year so diesel is out (of the newer age anyway) and I'm not too concerned at consumption. I've identified two for sale that look interesting a 2006 manual car with 37k clocked and a 2009 auto car at 59k miles. So I would like to ask if there are any problems I should look out for and what is the change cycle for cam-belts on this engine? Also, what is the service interval and normal servicing cost. Answers, advice appreciated. Thanks. Jerry Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
