Wiper washer fluid hose comes loose all of the time and I can't seem to clamp it so that it stays, it flops around when this happens.
All four disc rotors and calipers replaced at about 50,000 miles, $1200 and that was a good price.
Struts replaced at 60,000 miles, along with new tires and shocks, $2,000
Both mufflers rusted through at about 70,000 miles, $300
Alternator went at about 80,000, $300
Power antenna went at about 85,000, I replaced this myself for $120
Heater knob broke at 87,000 miles and was impossible to find replacement part for less than $20.
Fuel pump failed at 90,000 miles, $500
Bad alignment caused me to replace the rear tires again at 92,000, $300.
I do love to drive this car despite how expensive it has been. If you dislike the tin can feel of most import cars, you will love the smooth acceleration and the solid feel. For a car that accelerates this nicely it still rides very smooth with the right tires on it.
It doesn't corner the best, but you can catch them in the straightaway!
One big problem is the factory moon-roof lowers the ceiling an inch or two and the power drive seat raises it, so I bump my head when I try to sit straight up - if you are 6'0" tall keep that in mind!
The leather seats seem like a dealer option, they feel cheap and the seams are all fuzzy and worn.
This is the quietest engine you will ever drive, most people ask if me if it still running while we are sitting at a stop light!
This car still looks GREAT despite being 7 years old, the body styling is as close to timeless as any car made in the 90's comes.
