My experience has been pretty great so far. I've got a 2001 with 43,000 miles on it and haven't had that many problems. Since I got the car I've had to replace the throttle body twice(dealership's fault), had the brake pads replaced last November, had new vacuum hoses replaced last summer and will need to have the car scanned soon; the airbag light has been on for a month. I will also have to buy a new oil pan within the next few months. Other than that, I have had a blast with my NB.
I have a '99 with 58500 on it...I got it used at 54400 I believe. It had new brakes put on it and a new windshield before I picked it up. No real issues with it so far. Waiting for the money to do the 60k service and hoping my water pump doesnt break before then. I've had the drivers side microswitch replaced and I have a broken drivers side radiator fan. Other than that, no problems :knock on wood:
Let's see, Elwood's a 99 with 37k some odd miles. I've gone through, 1 battery, 1 set of tires, 1 maf, 1 o2 sensor, 1 air filter, over a dozen oil changes(religious at 3k), 1 trunk latch, 1 trunk seal, and 1 keyless remote key.
I am not going to list items I broke trying stupid stuff.. This is my list of items that needed replacing due to wear and tear.... lil pissed about those brakes. Should have lasted a lot longer then 12,000 or so miles. I am still on the original wiper blades, battery, window switches.. etc. Not bad for a car about to turn 6 years old on Nov 17.
