I bought the car like this, so the exact time and mileage of are unknowns, head gaskets needed replacement. Oil leakage and high coolant consumption, also white smoke came out of the engine on some occasions. Despite all of that, the car ran perfectly, only annoyance when the white smoke comes out and sometime mixed with the air of AC.
