Mines running fine, but still has a small coolant leak. Todd said it was on the back of the engine, so the water manifold might be leaking -- I'd have to confirm though.

The underbody plastic that holds the outside temp sensor is gone though, so the sensor's dangling in the breeze. I have a new one on order, but no idea when I'll get to it.

I have been looking at other cars, but it has been frustrating to say the least. If I find one I like, I find out it's likely a ticking time bomb, waiting to blow my wallet to smithereens (see Mazdaspeed3, any VW with a 2.0T -- Todd even warned me about those).

One more thing -- the ASC and ABS are intermittently DOA. I suspect a sensor.

I might have to break down (no pun intended) and buy something (gulp) ordinary.
