Hi, heavily debating purchasing a 2.2 brera but I've heard so many bad reports on the timing chains going? Can someone help me out I'm not sure what to do.
That isn't true, but it's usually the first thing people say's the culprit.22JTS chain issues is subject to long engine oil change interval of 30tkm ( or 18-20t miles you have ).
Last 22JTS was released ex factory mid 2009.
So, if to find used 22JTS of last generation whose owner has been already aware of chain issues at beginning that time and has reduced his oil change interval to 10-15tkm to avoid chain issue in future it would not brings a problems. Just watch for service interval mentioned in a service book.
