I bought mine new in October 2001 I still have the original battery rear brakes and insides. As for repairs I replaced an EGR sensor at 15k and it was warranty. I now have 46k on it and never had a problem other than routine wear items like brakes and tires. I keep the oil changed and I did a ATX fluid change at 20k. I will need to get a driver seat mines showing wear. Other wise its been a good dependable car and I would buy another.
