"We bought this car when it was only a year old with 15K miles, and it was fine for the first 6 or 7 years, up until about 75K miles. We take very good care of our cars, with regular oil/filter changes, etc. so the engine is basically still fine, but everything else is "nickle and diming" us. The transmission needed to be replaced around 90K miles, and the suspension components are problematic, with strut issues, sway bar, control arm, wheel bearing, and more. The car has needed thermostat replacements, alternator replacements, etc. The undercarriage and especially the rocker panel area are rusty, to the point where you can't put the floor jack where it's recommended, because there's no solid metal left. The interior is okay, except for where the console shift mechanism no longer registers which gear you're in (there was a manufacturer's recall on that, I believe.) I can't imagine this car can actually make it to 150K mi, like other people have said. It's seen better days, despite our regular care."
