The things you are worried about I cannot agree with,the engine is a bit noisy but not uncommon for a chain driven engine, oil leaks I've seen a few but nothing to worry about and the balance of the powertrain warranty is still good till 60k or 2017,the radio if you are a enthusiast is about the only thing I may agree with ,the sound is not the best, ***** *****'s comparable with most sedans in it's pricing.As long as the vehicle has been maintained and you plan to maintain it also this car will be good to you.
