At around 180000, the headlight switch started to melt, and the headlights would flicker off and on. So I went to the junk yard, and found one not so melted. I by-passed the headlights with a toggle switch (20 amp) and mounted it next to the original. So now I use the original for the dash lights, and the toggle for the headlights. This eliminated the melting caused by the short in the headlight circuit.
At 190000, the passenger window quit working; haven't fixed it yet. Luckily the A/C is cold as ice, front and back.
Replaced the muffler at around 175000.
Regular maintenance: oil, brakes, windshield wipers, tranny fluid, battery, etc.
Never has it broken down on me. My father-in-law bought it brand new. The only thing we had to replace was the starter solenoid at 120000, and it was $15, and took 5 minutes to replace.
It started running a little rough at 200000, so I add 1 ounce of acetone to every 10 gallons of gas every fill up, and try to avoid ethanol blend. Now it runs better than when I first bought it; smoother acceleration and better gas mileage, about 21 mpg.
Drivers side window needs help when going down, like it's bound up, but it goes up just fine.
