I work on my own cars so this thread has been of interest to at least one person.
Wife got A 04 few years ago it was Rebuilt wreck R titled my brother in law did the work and he let my niece drive it so I know it was good. Needed nothing and has been the wifes work car for 3-4 years great on gas no rust had 80,000 on it when we got it around 140000 now. I think there ugly as $#!& cars though however they are durable. In the 3-4 years it has had a rear wheel bearing,valve cover and tires. It really needs A oil pan its nothing but flaking rust which I read is normal and would like to do the timing belt thats a job for spring. OH and I didnt get it cheap it was $3,000.00 but did have low miles no rust and needed nothing.
