Reverse gear failures and noise in the manual transmission models are common.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

An engine coolant leak may develop, most commonly from the water pump. The valve cover gasket is also prone to leaking engine oil.

Heater core leaks are common in this model, more so if the wrong anti-freeze/coolant is used in the cooling system.
