I bent one of the factory 16" steel alloy wheels, the cheapest I could find a replacement for was $480, I was able to find 4 aftermarket Enkei rims for $400 installed and balanced.
The alternator bracket was missing a bolt and actually bent itself out of shape.
The sunroof has broken and won't shut completely.
The motor started to burn oil around 130K miles.
Due to the bent bracket the alternator fried itself.
The clutch and master cylinder went out at about 140K miles.
Shortly after replacing the clutch and master cylinder the pressure line for the transmission broke.
Recently someone cut me off on the highway forcing me to slam on my brakes, now I have a crack all the way through on of my brake rotors.
I also had to replace the tie rods, brakes, ball joints and Hub assemblies when I bought the car.
The blower motor for the heat and A/C died on me just before winter.
The back 3 spark plugs on the motor were fowled out causing the motor to miss. (I had to remove the intake manifold to reach them.
The check engine light has been on since I bought the car due to poor catalytic converters.
The break pad wear sensor broke off on the front passenger side causing the brake warning light to remain on constantly.
The pigtail to the left front Lo-beam headlight melted and needed to be replaced, the warning light still comes on every now and again, but clicks off as soon as I start to drive.
The car is quicker than most yet still lacks behind my roomate's 4cyl due to the weight of the car.
The car handles and drives well.
The traction control works excellent the car actually launches instead of just spinning tires.
The interior is very comfortable as long as your in the front, if you get stuck sitting in the back you'd better be ready for a very cramped and uncomfortable ride.
Rumor has it that the 2.5L motor is garbage and usually doesn't make it past 130K miles. Mine's over 150K and runs fine with the exception of burning oil (easily fixed, I added Lucas oil stabilizer when changing the oil and haven't had a problem since.
