I purchased my car brand new. I'm going to just rattle off the problems I've has with it over the years:
Some dates and cost of repair are an estimate. Some I never had fixed.
2001 - O2 sensor was replaced.
2001 - Cup holder broke and was replaced.
2002 - Front speakers blew - dealer would not replace.
2002 - Armrest latch broke - dealer would not replace.
2002 - Glove box latch broke - dealer would not replace.
2002 - 2nd cup holder broke; dealer would not replace.
2002 - Defrost switch for side view mirrors broke.
2003/2004 - "J" joint broke, it works with the power steering, $500.
2005 - Cracked oil pan, $350; I was at the dealership at the time and they would not give me an oil change unless I replaced it.
2005 or 2006 - Driver's side power window broke; dealer replaced.
2007 - Radiator blew, $500.
2008 - $600, Stock CD changer started going out on me.
2008 - Timing belt broke, flew off, smashed my power steering pump and bent tension arm $750 without replacing the T. arm.
2009 - Replaced 2nd O2 sensor, a vacuum, got 4 new tires, major tune up $1400 (yes $1400).
2009 - Same mechanic "your oil pan is cracked" wow another cracked oil pan. Did not replace.
2009 - My stock CD changer hasn't worked in 6 months.
Today - 8/18/09 my car won't start. I don't know if it just a battery thing or an alternator. I had somebody yank the attena out of my car in 2001 and the quoted price from the dealer that I was told to fix it $300+
