Looking to buy a 3.6 di
I test drove a used sts and cts yesterday and was quite pleased with how they held the rode and felt to drive. However when I got home I was quite crushed to find there to be a huge problem with stretching the timing chains. So my question is this; Is taking it in and getting it repaired a true fix? Or is it replacing with the same failing parts? If it is the same parts is there an aftermarket company making chains that will outlast the engine? I love the cars but i am a firm believer that if you buy a vehicle and stick to the scheduled maintenance it should absolutely go 150-200k without any major issues. I'm willing to change a chain once, but not have it as ever looming problem. Any insight would be greatly appreciated
