I bought this car when it was a year old and I have had it since. I did real bad with maintenance but the thing just keeps running. Just recently I replaced 146,000 mile drive belts. Not because I was having problems with it...I was just concerned that they were so old. After 100,000 miles things started breaking: Battery, water pump, thermostat,rotors, pads, and calipers. I think this is good conssidering that one of my friends have Dodge Neons and they had to replace the head gasket at 20,000 miles and another one had to replace his Grand Prix water pump at 60,000.
