Replaced Catalytic converter at 23,400 miles.
Replaced catalytic converter at 36,200 miles.
Replaced power steering pump and complete rack and pinion assembly at 45,500 miles.
Replaced wildly erratic temperature sensor and thermostat at 47,500 miles.
Replaced catalytic converter at 77,950 miles.
Emergency brake cable broke at around 60K miles.
Plastic hinge strap for center armrest/console broke twice.
Driver's seat cushion spring tore loose from its mounting bracket around 65K.
Although it's still averaging about 21 miles per gallon on regular gas, my 5-speed manual transmission has poor acceleration. At higher speeds (70+) the drag penalty prevents significant increase in mileage.
Biggest problem is repeated failure of the catalytic converter! Three failures within the warranty period, and I have no confidence that it's not going to fail again.
Most serious problem was gradual failure of the steering system. Fluid within the rack and pinion was more like sludge.
Scariest problem was failure of the temperature sensor, which indicated that the engine was seriously overheating, when it was actually okay.
