The dash control lights blew a fuse for HVAC type controls just below the nav screen. Thankfully it was a recall item and the dealer fixed it no problem. I have 68,000 miles and the front suspension is starting to creak just a tiny bit. The interior is rock solid. So creaks, cracks, or squeaks. Everything works as expected. The driver's seat is starting to show some age in the leather but I guess that is expected for a 6 yr old car. I have only owned for two years and 20k miles but have paid for no repairs. Only maintenance such as tires, oil, filters, etc. One thing to note, the ride is a wee bit rough as it is a sportier car.
150,000 miles later it's still a great car. I had to change the clutch and starter when the car hit 130,000 miles. The only major problem I had with it was the cooling system. A/C compressor was changed three times (due to faulty parts) n condenser was changed once (luckily, I only had to pay once for parts and labor) and, of course, it doesn't seem to work as well as it did before.
Pros: Great blend of economy and performance. Beautiful interior and exterior. Good handling. High quality beyond its price.

Cons: Fragile. Paint scratches, chips and fades like none other I've seen. Went from red to orange during my ownership despite fanatical attention to it. Tan leather began to show blue marks around seams -- dealer blamed my blue jeans, but investigation uncovered manufacturing problems. Parking bumps on plastic bumper areas looked terribke and would have been expensive to fix. Leather marked easily.
Handles, runs & drives great!!! 28MPG. Navi just quit. A/C compressor imploded the following week. 130k miles on my 04.
