The transmission on my car went at
50,000, and the dealer wouldn't replace
it. One person ran into it (just with
his body, not a car) and left a big
dent in the side. The air conditioning
went out at 75,000 miles. The salt on
the roads has eroded the muffler and
loosened the catalytic converter cap,
no matter how often I get it replaced.
On the plus side, it gets great gas
mileage, and you can fit a surprising
amount into it. Also can park it in
very tight spots.
