The year to test drive is 2009 Rich. In 2009 the dreaded intermediate shaft was eliminated. Prior to 2009, 10% of Pcars suffered from engine failure secondary to a grease bearing design defect. Especially when the car had low miles and was driven infrequently, seemingly the best buy candidates. I nearly bought a 2006 at the toy barn in 2015 with 30 something on the clock. The IMS fix, a ceramic bearing runs about 3 grand. FYI. 2009 also has direct fuel injection, try mine.

Thanks. The 2009 S is an A-Street cars; 2006 - 2008 S is a B-Street car.  Need to research the 2009+ base models which are B-Street cars.

The IMS issue us the worst on the Gen 1 cars - it is much less common on the 2006 to 2008 cars, though as you note the 2009+ cars are bullet proof in this regard.

Then again, might say the hell with it and go for a Spec Twin.
