In regards XXXXX XXXXX worthy concerns common on this model, inspect exhaust for leaks at muffler joints, inspect the front engine cover for oil leaks and also be sure to check basic things such as tyres or windscreen cracks. Other things to look at on this model is coolant leaks from the welsh plugs or radiator or heater tap located under intake manifold on passenger side.
