Default things that don't currently work in your car,

or malfuctioning.............

well, the heated seat went around late Jan (good news the passenger gets all the comfort) I'd say that was around 85k?



hmm.... lets see what else........Windo went friday that was around 87-88k ish,

thought I was experiancing LIM but I think it'* just a bad oil gasket oil just kept dissappearing without a trace, so much when I took it for its 3k mile change I was down to 20% and the info center in my car read "20% normal" low on oil took it to wal-mart to and minutes later I heard "Mr Tellis please come to automotive concerning your car" Well isn't that nice, I was told I didn't even have any oil on the stick got it changed maybe Thurs or Fri and I'm already down to 92%? normal I don't know...........

fuel injector went about a month after I had it that was around 80k,

some idiot (still think it was pops in another drunken rage) backed into my car that was about a month ago.

A light bulb in the speedo guage, a light bulb in the heater control, the cigarette lighter plub below the radio (only used for charging my phone) and the cigarette plug behind the center console. The overhead one works perfectly though.

After replacing the other wheel bearing, finally getting around to the intermediate shaft and replacing the radio display lights, all that is left is the driver'* seat and if ever I can find out the information on the amber LEDs in the radio, I'll tackle that.
Being of a certain age, I can remember when a car hit 100,000 miles, it was usually ready for the boneyard so by that measure, these are much better cars. However, if you consider the reliability of the Hondas and Toyotas,these cars don't come close to measuring up.

We can't. And it doesn't belong here. This section is for posting mechanical problems for diagnosis and repair. This is a general rant.

Off to General Chat with this one.
