It's too much of a long shot trying to figure out how the reliability of the 2.3 is going to be.

There are MANY reliable turbo cars from factory...and many not so reliable ones. It's true...there are a lot more things that can go wrong with them compared to N/A engines or even PD boosted ones...leaks especially. Also, over the years, the engines do get a little more "tired". This won't stop it from being a potentially great engine, though.

The only gripe I have with the new 2.3 is the mileage...which I can't wait to see when released, especially under the new guidelines. Anyone who has owned or driven a turbo knows, that going into boost, even a little bit, EATS fuel. Real world mileage will be a BIG factor.
