    3 replaced turbos on a 6000mile car is a lemon in my books. Also a very low price and an auction purchase to switch dealers are also lemon redflags. Maybe you will luck out but there's a reason the car changed dealers via auction and you got it dirt cheap.

    here's what I think.......I have another 2,000 miles if the situation would repeat it self..... but I think it had a bad turbo...it was replaced with a bad mechanic.....the 3rd turbo came with a mechanic that heard a noise.....and repaired right .......that is what I think''''if it's a lemon ......then we will see . I got it cheap enough to get a gt,lol.
