I have a sportwagon, nearly 10 years old, i've had it 4 years the longest time i've ever owned a car,
like your GT it has been completely reliable. It is serviced to schedule and has needed wishbones, bushes, radiator and thermostat and 2x belt
changes, the last belt service was a few days ago which included water pump with metal impellor, variator, balance belts and all tensioners etc.
I do spray silicone oil on the suspension parts anually and have cleaned under the arch covers no rust, thats all i've done.I might just waxoil under the car as a preventative maintenance measure before the winter sets in as this is a daily driver.
It has covered 30,000miles in my ownership, 55,000 total miles and also uses no oil, is this rare....
Not tempting fate i hope.....
