my wife drives it daily. If she can't hurt it, no one with any mechanical sympathy can. She gives no fucks. Oh it's -10 and there's 12" of snow on the road? let me just fire it up and immediately hit 3 gears pulling out of the driveway in the snow. <- true story, watched her do it two weeks ago.

whiteblocks are solid. the aisin trans MAY become a problem, but they were fixed after 03, mostly. unless you neglect it, they are fine.
Electricity is really just organized lightning.
