View Full Version : Common issues with 2000 SE2

03-21-2004, 06:20 PM
I just bought a 2000 SE2 coupe (3.4 v6). It has slightly over 100000 miles on it, but is in very good shape. The motor sounds nice and tight (no piston slap, nice and quiet) and it handles great, shifts great (auto) etc. However, I've had it 4 days and the water pump has started leaking (thank God for warranties).

My question is, are there any common issues I shoudl watch out for with this higher mileage SE2? It seems to be in great shape (except for the H2O pump) but you never know...

Is this a question that's in a faq somewhere that I missed?

Just read through the posts. The ones you see 2 and 3 times are the ones that are common problems. All cars have some issue or another, especially at 100K miles.
