So far I've had the clutches replaced and my coolant level slowly lowers. Only other complaints are too many rock chips in paint, a few rattles, and sometimes the trunk won't open with fob or button on trunk. Oh and almost a $13,000 depreciation after 60,000 miles and 1.5 years. Otherwise it's been great. Hwy mpg seems to get better over time I get 38 mpg hwy easy. Hope to keep it past 200k miles.

How many miles on yours?
Same issues as you: rattles, clutch, slow coolant leak.

Bought it in July of 2011 and I have a little over 66k miles. Damn, you drive a lot. There was one thread a while ago where someone said they had already reached 100k miles using it for deliveries, and I think it was also purchased used... I can't find the thread, though.

23k miles, bought end of November 2012. Over lifetime, I'll probably average right at 25k/year. I'm going to keep it to at least pay off, probably beyond.

Zero mechanical issues currently. I expect a synchro issue in the MTX sometime in the not too distant future. Since new, when shifting quickly, it likes to give a little grind from first to second. I've slowed down and don't race it as much, but sometimes... sometimes you just have to.

There is a slight oil seep at the valve cover. I'll clean it off and see if it's ongoing on just residual sometime soon. Not too concerned, levels look good from oil change to change at 5k intervals.

Yeah I drive too much but the car has overall been great for what I do. I'm a sales rep with a very large territory.

6300.... transmission is making me sick already, traffic every morning and afternoon going home I get a little more buyer's remorse. If I get to drive it on the highway that remorse goes back down just a little.

What makes me feel even worse is at the 5k service interval I mentioned something about it to the service rep and he just said "that's just how it is, don't creep" - does he drive at all in this city? I just KNOW if I try to take it in for repair he's just going to tell me "that's how they're made" - long road ahead I'm sure.
