Oh, don't get me wrong celsdogg, i am aware of the ease of some of those repairs, just look at it this way, it's a $40k car (when new), it's been dealer maintained, less than 100k mi on the clock, yet its got ALL those repairs that are needed. I've been averaging 15,600 mi/yr. That's not really beyond average, so I'm just a bit annoyed at how delicate this piece is. My previous car (sold at 155k mi) never had so many things go wrong so easily yet this one hasn't even reached 100k mi and the transmission... com'on?!
