Hey guys and gals! Just got a sweet deal on an ‘09 LS XFE with just under 40k on the clock. Awesome little ride! Glad to be driving a bow tie again.

Any common issues to watch for? Is the 2.2 LAP prone to any problems with the chain tensioner/guides or cam phaser?

Thanks in advance!

Welcome! It's amazing how cheap these cars can be had - they're great vehicles.

And by 2009 a lot of the issues were dealt with. Just keep the oil topped off so you don't starve the chains.

Thanks guys. I turn wrenches for a living, primarily on competitor vehicles. I'm impressed with how simply designed this car is. No need to remove 10 other parts or become a contortionist just to get tools in the engine bay. I imagine the SS' are a bit more cramped, but there's plenty of room with the 2.2. The placement of the battery is genius compared to newer vehicles of a certain other brand.
