As i mentioned in my previous posting i am looking to buy a 156 1.8 or 2.0. A few that i have seen advertised have had there engines relplaced due to belt failure or other faults. Should i steer clear of these cars (excuse the pun!!) or does it really matter. Obvioulsly i realise that milage on previous engine should be checked to see overall mileage of car but are there other things i should be concerned about?

Think most would agree, gear drives are best, followed by chain, least reliable- belts. The choice is difficult, as the majority of manufacturers favour belts. A SAAB perhaps.
