The recall was for 2002 and later models. I have a 2001 which suffered the bad ground issue and it took me under 30 minutes to DIY. Use the search mode and learn about the "tail light ground issue".

I just had to replace all four O2 sensors at 120k miles in order to pass the emissions test. I would worry more about the ICV, Disa, intake boots and vacuum hoses.
