    Originally Posted by LoneRanger Gotta love the EJ 2.5, look at that viscosity retention. Not even a hint of shearing. Best engine Subaru ever made. Oh yes! I was surprised. It's good to see the car I now I have isn't a worry when it comes to lubrication.

    Thoughts on 2007 Nissan Sentra 60K for a used car?

    That's what I figured as the price was low enough. Private sale, garage kept. Good inexpensive car to start with. I'm proud of him. Watching him smile was priceless!

    My son is looking for his first car (gulp!) and we're eyeing up an 07 Sentra tomorrow morning. What are the weak points I should look for as we take a closer look at the car tomorrow?
