from The Hypertwins:

  • Apparently the engine used in this model is prone to developing a worn head gasket, which causes smoking from the tailpipe and a tendency for the engine to make clicking "sewing machine" noises
  • The AC/vent fan tends to switch off when the transmission is shifted into reverse
