Replaced alternator 5 times.
Security system makes me wait three minutes often due to worn out computer chip in key.
Headlights did not used to go down (we always rolled them down to make the car look good)
Driver's seat shredded from mileage.
Synchronizer-grinds when goes into 4th (my fault)
Shocks for hood and trunk have been replaced.
Radiator cracked and the car ran hot several times.
Stabilizer bar wore out and squeaked when you pushed the car side to side.
This is technically not my car, however, I would love to call it mine.
My husband bought the car in 1999 with the clutch going out for $2500 US dollars. He put a clutch in it and the car will not stop running.
The fact that the headlights will not go down seems to be a problem where I live. I have found the solution. Replace the headlight switch on the interior dash of the car. We heard every remedy in the book until that switch broke and had to be replaced.
When the floating gas needle gets to "E", you still have 5 gallons of gas left, don't panic.
The carpet and seats on the interior of the car are in dire need of repair.
The motor and transmission in the car are (as far as I know) original and stock.
I am a girl and even I can race this car and beat a Mustang any day of the week.
We put Flowmaster exhaust on it, and air shocks in the back to offset the body of the car from the bigger tires.
All in all, the car has over 318,000 miles on it and really only needs cosmetic repairs (seats, carpet, headliner, paint).
Not long after my husband got the car, someone offer him six thousand dollars for it and he turned them down. I would still say the same today.
I absolutely love everything about this car.
