You do as much maintenance as you can at this point.
I have an aftermarket warranty up to 100,000 miles. Maybe I'll just thrash it and see if I can get the tensioner to get to the point of needing to be replaced before the warranty ends at 100,000 miles.

The way that stuff usually works is you beat the hell out of it, only to have it not need anything until 103,000 and then you have a catastrophic failure out-of-warranty.

Bought it with 60k for 16k. Ran it up to 160k, and sold it for 6k before things got really expensive (open disclosure to the seller that it probably needed a clutch and other expensive maint). Overall, it was actually less maintenance than the rabbit and had a lower tco to date...
