lot of electrical problems

I've had this car for almost two years. I've had very few problems save some annoying electical gremlins. That being said, they are acceptable problems given the age and complexity of the electrical system. I recently had to replace the trans. mounts,otherwise just routine maintenance. I love this car and find it a great joy to own and operate.
