I'm not sure what it is, but one thing that comes to mind is the timing chain. Are you aware of the issues with the timing chain in the N20/26 motor? There are several threads about it on here. The timing chain warranty has been extended to 7 yrs/70k miles. There is also a class action lawsuit that is close to being settled.

I wasn't aware. I just started looking into though. My car has 77,000 miles on it but I bought an extended warranty from another company and it says the timing chain is covered

I'd rather have no issues then a class action.
Nothing like getting free money when you don't even have a claim !
