Oil leaks are the worst - sump, rear main, rocker cover, power steering. However gaskets aren't costly.

Cracks in the dash plastics.

Air con vacuum leaks - blows at your feet, not your face.

General Comments:

For a 1998 car, it has everything needed to feel comfortable.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
