Surprises are not always pleasant

I went to purchase this car in 2005 with all options availble knowing I'd keep the car years based on reliability. I have been surprised with excessive 'service' charges $80 to $200 for regular oil change visits. I've already replaced my tires at 17k mi which is extremely soon and my brakes and rotors at 29k. It's a great looking vehicle and reliable on the snow, however, replacing these main ticket items and 3 car recalls in 2 years so incredibly soon in the car's life is ridiculous to say the least.
