I bought the TS for my wife last August.
Bearing in mind it is a 45K miles car, that had been cossetted in a heated garage the list of parts is astonishing. Apart from the cambelts which I put into a garage to have done as I was unsure of their condition I have fitted all these parts myself (all due to failures of original parts) so at least have avoided labour costs!
You can work out the parts cost of this little lot for yourselves!
Compared to my other vehicles my family own (Vauxhall Vectra, Seat Ibiza, Nissan Primastar, Glof TDI) these maintenance costs are bonkers!
