All the drains at the base of the windshield ( under the cowl ) and at the bottom of the front fenders were plugged with pine needles and mud. Had to take it all apart, removed cowl and fender liner, in order to wash it all out. Took a day. sunroof gasket fell off and I re-glued with 3M weather strip glue ( good stuff). Lots of glue left over for next job.

Rear oxy sensor kaput. 2nd time in 2 years, 35,000kms. Each lasted 40,000kms. First one took 4 yrs and second 2 years. These things are problematic. The turbo has a history of repeated failures. It may be related to cold winters. 200 km later Rear oxy sensor again. These things can be reset with a good code reader and it takes 5 minutes or less. This time light back on in 2 km. Humidity seems to be a problem. Replaced sensor.

The linkage between the shifter arm and the tranny is quite exposed and it slowly began to seize up with dirt and corrosion. A lot of WD40, compressed air, and elbow grease freed it up so that grease could be liberally sprayed at the joints.

This car is hard on brakes. Discs and pads were new at 65,000 kms two years ago. Did not do a regular maintenance last year and it cost me this year. Moral of the story "Do a regular maintenance annually".
