A clicking or popping sound from the front of the vehicle (left or right side) while accelerating from a stop may be fixed by installing a rubber gasket on the axle shaft.
The sunroof may open only to the vent position and close, or it may open to the vent position and get stuck. This may occur after the sunroof was operated at high freeway speeds, which applies excessive force to the sunroof mechanism. The sunroof mechanism will need to be disassembled and reassembled, replacing mechanism parts as needed.
A click heard when turning the steering wheel may be solved by aligning the steering column or installing revised parts in the column (requires removal of the steering column).

We just hit 325,000 miles, care gets 34 mpg on the highway (86 miles each way to work). At 200,000 we replaced the struts, at 275,000 or so the timing belt went out; 3 days before the appointment to replace it. Next week we are taking it in and having the rear main seal and the clutch replaced. I paid $10,700 for it brand-new-no complaints at all!
wife's car for work. O2 sensor problems and computer problems at 80K miles.
Other than that it holds up well.
