I don't own a Lotus yet, but I'm hoping to in the very near future. But reading the forum posts about a myriad of engine problems in these cars has made me a little wary. I thought one of the benefits of a Lotus is its use of the 'reliable' Toyota poweplant? If the engine is so reliable, then why all of the stories about cam and rocker arm problems, etc.? Is this just a matter of a vocal minority of owners who have had legitimate issues with the car and come here to vent, or is the Toyota engine in the Elise/Exige really that unreliable? I can deal with some window leaks, squeaks and rattles, weak AC etc., but if the engine is going to break down repeatedly then I'm going to look elsewhere for a driving thrill.
