    Judging from the last post before IL went dark, this car is not only a total rip, but a scream. Whatever happened to the belt squeal?

    I don't think of 140k miles as a very big deal. My Acura TL has 240k miles on it and it's still running smooth, although it does need a new cat which will be an issue in about 1.5 years when it goes in for the smog test. I'm even on the original transmission.

    I'd like to know when the new engine is going to be put in...seems like it's been a while with no news on that front.
