I got this car from my brother with about 60K miles on it.
The check engine light came on soon afterwards, the IMRC actuator was not working.
Brake rotors wore out about every 20K miles, apparently that's normal. At 119K, IAC went bad, then everything else did too.
Fuel lines, fuel pump, MAF sensor, O2 sensors, bad cat, and the brakes squealed even with new rotors and pads.
It was a great car until about 100K miles, then it gave up.
Oh yeah, the air filter is "lifetime" or 100K miles, then it's 500$
Poor quality parts, disposable American car.
My 93 Subaru has 180K on it, runs great, very few problems.
Sad American cars can't really compete with Japanese cars that are made in America
Good fuel economy when everything works.
Which is not very often.
American car manufacturers should use better parts.
Either that or make the poor quality parts easier to reach, so you don't have to take them to the dealer to replace for large amounts of money.
