165,000 miles and I need frt. wheel bearings,another set of struts,half shafts, lower control arm bushings, stabilizer strut arms,outer tie rod ends,clutch on it's last leg, and a timing belt change is close to be needed. A frt. break job with calipers sure could help, along with new brake hoses.Rear stabilizer bushings would stop the rearward noises, and a new emergency brake cable[mine broke at 135,000 miles] could come in handy. But beside a few other little probs. the car drives well. I love it.
