So I bought my 2010, 5-speed manual SE February 2016. It had 198,000 miles, is fairly beat inside and out, and cost me $1,300. I immediately put $35 into it for an antennae (apparently the old one had broken off). then a couple of months later put about $5 into it for new bolts for the heat shield under the gas tank (the rattle was annoying me)
2 weeks ago I put new tires on it and replaced the wheel bearings on the front, passenger side. I take it in for inspection today and have no reason to expect it to need any more work.
I've had less issues in my first year of ownership with this than either of my last two brand new vehicles.

|IrocZX3||Old thread, but figured I would give my 2 cents for anyone looking into these cars. Nothing major only the expected normal wear and tear on my '03 ZX3. I have owned 7 different cars in my 12 short years of driving experience. My focus has been hands down, my most reliable and enjoyable vehicle. Second in fun only to the GSX Eclipse (for obvious reasons) I drove back in the day. It sat for over two months this passed summer and started immediately without hesitation!|

My 2009 finally put me a foot for the first time this week at 202500 miles. It did wait until I was 8 miles from home and not where I was shopping 50 miles away that morning.
It had the courtesy of flipping the serpentine belt in front of the local towing service.
Belt tensioner was still tensioning but wore so the pulley was 5° out of the belt plane. I put a new tensioner and water pump in all is good again.
I'm hoping to make it to 250,000 miles.

I bought my 2007 SE at 146,000KM. So far I've only had to replace the battery which was the original and left me stranded, and the alternator which was not producing enough voltage and causing the light to come on intermittently. Other than that, just maintenance, spark plugs, PCV valve, intake gaskets.

|ajs097||When I get into my 2013 Titanium Sedan with the upgraded Sony system, often I find that the music volume can be at max and it will only come out at 1/2 of what I know it can do. Normally, 1/2 is perfect and max vol. is way too loud, it seems to fix itself after I get out and restart the car. Also, the volumes for Bluetooth stereo vs radio vs usb music vs a CD are all different. This is extremely frustrating.|
