These cars have more plastic parts that have replaced metal parts which has caused many failures. Plastic and heat DO NOT MIX and they do/will fail. My 545 had 70k when I found cracks in the cooling system which were very close to breaking completely.

People are just trying to provide information on what they have read or have experienced personally. If you were to ask me, If you are at 92K and the fluids in your diff and trans have not been changed, you may be past he point of no return. My 545 trans was done at 50k and it looked like it was filled with motor oil and not transmission fluid.
