Bought the car in 2016 with 132,000 miles. Yes, that's a lot, but did regular oil changes / maintenance. Even replaced upper and lower intake manifold gaskets. Nice car, checked oil/coolant /fluids every few days. Drove to town, made one stop, and when I started it up again dash was flashing "engine overheated / turn off air cond".. Temperature gauge was all the way cold, even though it should have been normal from having just been driven. Drove 300 feet to local garage - we both thought it was sticking thermostat. NO! Test showed a blown head gasket. I was sick. Really liked that car - I could see if it was never serviced and that happened. Beware buying anything with higher miles! Did die with 170,000 plus on it.

I noticed at when stopped (not accelerating) my heat in the car would blow out cold air. But, until i would accelerate the heat would then turn on. My cars engine warms up and stays warm just my heat is cold. Not good for Michigan weather. I was told that i can get an extended warranty on my car for $500 so i think i might do that instead of paying the 1500 dollars.

Noticed one cold day that we were not getting any heat whenever we would stop at a light, but it would return when we would accelerate. When I got home I refilled the coolant and checked for visible leaks. A few weeks later it happened again. Dealership confirmed a blown head gasket. The repair took an entire day but was thankfully covered under the extended power train warranty.
