How many miles would a well taken care of Aurora go before major repairs are required like engine and transmission rebuild or timing chain changes?
First, a timing chain replacement is not a major repair. With today's extented engine life timing belt and chain replacement has become part of routine maintenance. More information is needed to answer this question. Listed are just a few of the varibles involved. What, for instance is the contributors idea of "well taken care off".
