I am the second owner of this particular car and it was maintained well. A/C freezing cold and burns gas well. In my opinion, if you maintain this car it will not give any issues. I change the oil every 3000 miles and do a tranny flush every 5,000, radiator flush every 3,000 miles. It runs great and if you want it a little faster change the stock air filter and exhaust, mines reaches 50 really quickly. Just maintain it it will last you until your ready for a new car.
A/C Miami is extremely hot during summers and I use it on low the whole car is freezing. The door locks are not durable, but you can find them on eBay for $12-15 inside and $15-25 outside. I only changed 3 so far 2 inside and 1 outside.
Door locks, change filter and add exhaust for more power.
