This car has over 201,000 miles, and had very few problems until very recently like water pump and radiator, and the o-ring on the distributor shaft. Over 16 years, these plastic and rubber parts have become brittle and need to be replaced. But overall reliability has been remarkable. After some cleaning/servicing, it runs quite smoothly, not less than it was new.
The flex exhaust pipe got in the way of the oil pan, and the material for the pipe is not durable. The material for the radiator disintegrates after 16 years (cracks all over).
