Default Considering another Baja Turbo

I sold my '05 Turbo back in '06 and I was looking through my car brochures and got interested again. The package better fits our family's lifestyle now than it did back in '06. What have been some of the common issues or higher mileage issues?

Thanks!

Head gasket
Turbo

Suspension wear and tear,
rust behind door / over spare tire

New seat every 40k or it hurts.


For me it was easier to install a new engine, but then again I went nuts so yea.

I've got a gorgeous Black '05 Turbo Auto with only 77K miles that I'm going to have to part with. Taking it up to the Baja meet in Burlington, VT this weekend and then posting it for sale.

House needs a roof and the cost is right around the value of the car. Since I can't sell my other car, the Baja's got to go.
