Another quick point, dont wait till your timing chain gets noisy, replace it ASAP

I had mine snap at 70,000 ks with no rattle or warning whatsoever, 2007 4wd STX d40 spainbuilt

Had to replace the head too because the pistons hit the valves
when the chain let go

Thanks for this information...I think I'm going to take advantage of the free timing chain wear check advertised on the yd25 website.

Getting it checked first is the best step. 2012 models didn't seem to have many chain failures, about 2009 were the last of the cars that we saw these complaints commonly.

And my own 2009 (July manufacture, October delivery) STX has 305,000km on the clock and still on the original chains. I'm on my 2nd SCV, 3rd viscous hub, my 4th turbocharger, my 3rd BCS was booted out in favour of a Tilix valve and my DPF sensors have been replaced thanks to auggie. Other than that it's been normal wear and tear - a wheel bearing, couple of transfer case seals, one uni joint ... and we tow a lot, we spend last school holidays wandering out to Wilcannia, White Cliffs, Lightning Ridge, Moree, Glen Innes and back home again. We were going to go to Cameron Corner but decided our tyres may not be up to the task so we opted to change the trip.

Why so many Turbo's? Starting to think the zd wasn't such a bad choice ! Apart from having to do the I.P that is ;)

Have a look what the poor little turbo had to tow.

^ Indeed. Actually the 3rd turbo hadn't failed, it was misdiagnosed but replaced on advice from others as "the most likely candidate causing the problem", so in reality there's 2 failures and I have a perfect condition spare. The original factory turbo blew its bearings to bits (lots of towing in the outback in scorching temperatures) and the Forefront replacement shat itself probably because of the mountains we've been climbing.

I've adjusted my Tilix valve to provide slightly less boost than before. Fuel consumption hasn't varied by a great deal but hopefully the reduced pressure (peaks at about 18.6psi now) will translate to a bit more longevity.
