In addition to what's listed above your bound to have problems with the parking brake plastic gears breaking, a/c compressor bearings squealing, ABS computer failing, coolant crossover pipe leaking, and then plastic cooling lines, hoses, water pump, thermostat and every gasket in the engine will need to be replaced every 6-8 years.
Beautiful cars but not reliable at all. I've had 5 of these and all had every one of these problems in less than 100k miles.
Be prepared for expensive repairs or learn how to do them yourself. You can scan page after page after page in this forum and see nothing but problems with these cars.
These cars are designed to expire just before their original lease does. It's really sad that a car that originally cost nearly $80,000 is less reliable than a $20,000 Chevy truck and the truck still retains its value.
It's a love/hate relationship at best.
