Read above as far as mileage.

Like most Japanese car engines, the timing belt is a required maintenance item, and often the mechanic will want to replace the water pump at the same time.

I really liked mine, I used to pull a single-axle trailer with 1 ZTR loaded. It was a nice setup.
Yep, ours goes through O2 sensors like crazy, seems like they have replaced one several times when at the shop and another one is out and needs replacement.
High end commercial, multi-family and residential lawn care, irrigation (LI and BPAT), and landscaping.
