Bit of a list for this one!:
Transmission (and control unit, replaced around 120K).
Alternator about 7 times - preventative maintenance for my car :)
Front brakes - caliper recently seized, easy fix though.
Parking brake pivots in the rear drums OFTEN seize.
Headlamps often won't go down - the motors are fine but the pivots in the linkage seize easily.
CV joints have both been replaced.
Ball joints and tie rod ends (inner and outer, both sides).
When the car is running, it runs well. It's one of the most comfortable cars I've driven, especially for the money.
The four cylinder is surprisingly peppy, and the car stays stable at highway speeds (and beyond:).
Altogether, I really like the car. It's comfortable, and it still looks good on the outside (despite not rustproofing it, it's still not bad for a 12 year old car). Also, it's roomy, and being a hatchback I can carry anything in it (fridges, bikes, desks, no problem). When it finally dies, I'll miss it.
