I recently picked up a beautiful 2004 CS with 158k miles on the clock. I've read all the horror stories about the engine scoring and I'd just like to ask if I'm out of the weeds. The car has been kept in a warm climate, Charlotte NC, I don't here any knocking or obvious ticking, dealer maintained although I don't have service records. No smoke, not burning oil. So, after 158k miles, if she was gonna go, it probably would have happened already?
I'm grinning ear to ear with this thing and it's the only dark spot in my enthusiasm.
