Good point on the rear black pillars. I think that is a reminder to all of us, to not forget to wax those too, to have a bit of protection on them.I've only had my 350 for a few months now. It's an 05' with 34,000 miles on it, 6-spd. The only mechanical problems I had were with the heating element in the driver seat, which I had to replace, and the outside temp guage...it was always about 10* cooler than it should have been.
Externally the only fault is that the clear coat is pealling pretty bad on the rear black pillars. I think that's because the previous owner kept it in the sun too much. I intend to get it fixed soon, it's a real eye sore.
Other than that it feels pretty solid.
