This is a one-owner car. No one ever has smoked in the car. The car never has been launched off the line and always was driven moderately.

Blemishes include rock chips on the front fascia and hood and small dents in the roof with some rust. The left-rear rocker in front of the wheel and the left-rear door have been repaired due to a collision with a low-speed pylon. The rubber protector has worn off of the rear hatch open button. The engine bay insulation has worn away. The Lamin-X tail light overlays have faded. There is an NMO mount on the roof behind the antenna. The left bolster on the driver's seat exhibits significant wear, and the tonneau has tears on both the left and right sides.

Major mechanicals replaced:
  • Long block, due to #4 piston failure
  • Turbo, due to alleged fracturing
  • Timing belt
  • Steering pump
  • Steering rack, due to leak
It also has a new battery as of 9/2022.

The engine runs well. Power and boost are as expected. The 6-speed transmission shifts smoothly. All recalls have been completed. Synthetic oil always has been used. Service history is available. Everything on the car works properly except for right front window switch and door lock switch, which need to be replaced.
