155,000 miles and still running

ReviewI commute appox 120 (highway) miles each day in the Midwest (extreme weather, including snow, 100 degree and below zero degree weather days) using this car. I currently have 155K miles on the car. I regularly change the oil (synthetic blend after 100K) and get the belts (timing) replaced every 60K miles. Just this year I have experienced some looseness in using 1st gear (manual transmission). My goal is to get 200K miles out of the car.
Best FeaturesLow cost, good gas mileage.
Worst FeaturesNoticeable reduction in horesepower when using A/C (though not as noticeable on highway driving in 4th & 5th gears).
