Typically, you take tire rot at 5 years as the cost of playing the game. I suppose bad storage conditions could get a set to start going south around 4.

Must be, assuming you have a 2014. I've got the opening around the plug, but there's no points to mount a door, nor the half-turn washer to keep one closed.

Did the first oil change today at 2,850 miles. Just noting a few things that stood out.

Most of what you hear in the cabin when the roof is up is artificial engine noise pumped in through the sound system. It gets even louder if you are in "Sport" mode instead of "Comfort".

I'd look at alignment first if the wear is the same on both front tires and you're pulling in one direction.

Also, how old are the tires? Look at the last 4 digits of the DOT number. The first...

Thermostats fail as well. After all the labor to get at the pump and get it out, the thermostat is just a hundred bucks or so extra. Beats all hell out of paying for the labor twice.

Odds of dying: 1 in 1

Honestly, yeah, it does sound like a bad choice. If you can't afford the repairs, then you realistically can't afford the car.
