Engine reliability and common problems:

A fairly robust engine, easy to maintain and spare parts are readily available. Not too sensitive to fuel quality. High oil consumption and relatively short chain life (around 170 000 km).
Engine displacement 2362 cm3
Number of cylinders 4
Bore (cylinder diameter) 88.5 mm
Stroke length (piston move) 96 mm
Compression ratio 9.6 : 1
Camshaft drive Timing chain

Chain motors are considered more reliable, chain replacement usually is required less often than a timing belt, but they are often louder and vibrate more.

More service info
Timing chain change interval 150,000 km (recommended)

Sometimes manufacturers do not specify timing chain replacement intervals and design chains for engine life. However, once the recommended change interval has been reached, it is recommended to periodically check the condition of the chain and to change the chain if excessive stretching is detected or if unusual noises from the engine or other symptoms occur.
