no belt mate , they,re chain driven ,otherwise usual treg stuff , uneven tyre wear not good , get car on flat car park & drive away on full lock , ,if any jerkiness leave it as transfer box on its way out ,check both front doors have,nt "dropped" / - chrome window strip will be out of line , not an easy fix at all ,
then go for lowest miles & regular serviced & you should be satisfied , what,s your budget?
