10th Year anniversary!
Bought it 7/10/2001 with 10 miles on it. Now....
Few minor issues, but the engine & (auto) tranny are still going strong.
Quick review of things I had to do:
cooling system (exp tank) x 3
brakes/rotors x 5
CAB x 2
passenger window regulator
windshield x 3
batteries x 2
Vanos replacement $2000 ouch. I messed up during the fix so dealer got involved.
oil/filter twice a year for 10 years
O2 pre-cat sensors
power steering reservoir & pump
spark plugs every 60k
I replaced the tranny oil at about 150k miles and it's still good. Planning to do another one at 200k miles.
Never took the car in for inspections after warranty expired.

Hi. Why did you have to replace the expansion tank three times?
What about the other parts of th cooling system?
At what mileage did the power steering go out?
