Thanks for or the add! I recently picked up this 01 with a 2.0 5 speed. The car has 155k miles. I just started a job where I'll be driving 110 miles round trip a day. The car seems to be geared really low and turns about 3500 rpm when goin 75-80 on the interstate. My question is, is this ok for the car to run at a high rpm like this for extended periods? How many miles can I expect to get out of it, as in will it go for over 200k miles at least? It has also popped out of third gear once or twice, maybe needs shifter bushings? I bought it from the original owner and have all maint records, it's been very well cared for and will continue to be. Thanks for any info.
