13 year old car, what do you expect.

You really need to refresh most of basics.

Short list
Most underhood rubber parts
O2 sensors
Camshaft position sensors
CCV
Cooling sytem
Lower control arm bushings
Fuel pump & filter
DISA

I probably left out a few things, but these are pretty common items that you should expect in almost any 13 year old car.

But you need to make sure your subframe is in good shape before you commit to the car, otherwise you may be in for a surprise
