Hmmm, isn't that the same company that came out with the 2.7 in 1998.
Now there's an engine lots of people won't forget about...
Every brand has it's "lemon". That said, my 2.7 was great, never a WP or TC issue up to 250K mileage when I swapped.
From what I've seen and been told by sales men while looking and test driving cars for kicks and giggles, a lot of brands are mimicking that flawed design with an internal pump running off a timing chain. Can only assume pending doom there. Ironically, those motors were recalled for catching on fire. LOL
