Hey Guys!

I just purchased a used '08 El SC in galaxy gray (i think that's the name) with 17k miles on it. It's in great condition. Whoever was the previous owner probalby used to be on here 'cus I can tell her really took care of it and it came with almost every accessory.

Anyway, my question is what should I keep an eye on? Is there a thread that might tell me common problems or service bulletins that I might need to be aware of?

I have the extended 100k mile/6 year warranty on it and would like to take full advantage of it if/when things start popping up.

Thanks guys and look forward to learning more about this really cool car.

How do your brakes feel? Some 08s had a problem with mushy brakes. If you have mushy brakes and are in the VIN range in this TSB be sure to have it fixed under warranty. The VSA modulator is expensive.

Also, a lot of people have problems with the rear brakes dragging, so annual inspection and greasing the brake caliper pins is recommended. Other than that, it's just routine fluid and filter changes for now.
