At 100,000 miles or so the alternator blew for the first time in the cars life time, understandable in my case as I have a 600W system in the trunk, 150 for repairs and a lifetime warranty.
117,000 miles the Blower Motor failed and I replaced it myself cheaply taking a blower motor from my old grandam, a 94 SE with the Quad 4.
117,234 Check Engine light popped on and I discovered that Cylinder 2 was misfiring, I replaced the spark plugs myself and the problem was gone.
120,000 I hit a curb and put a bubble in my front left tire, my fault, but keep in mind tires are very expensive for this thing! 85 dollars a tire even for cheap ones.
122,435 The engine began to run a little to warm with the A/C on I had a coolant flush done and the problem was gone.
124,432 The engine started knocking occasionally, but only at idle. I took it to my local trusted mechanic and it is a wrist pin knock which is common in the 3100's. His son has a grand am with 198,000 miles on it and it has the same knock since about my engines age. It is nothing to serious to worry about.
