I am new to this forum and in the process of thinking about purchasing a 2011 Sport. 55k miles on it for $25k Car is extremely clean. I am very interested in this car, but slightly concerned about potential maintenance costs ahead of me. I am fairly mechanical and can fix a decent amount on my own, but trying to get a gauge as to what kind of project I am getting into. I drive 19k miles a year for work and need a reliable car. I have driven this car and loved it, but don't want something that is going to break down on me every other month. I don't mind putting some money into it each year, but not looking to have it sit on a tow truck twice a year. Lastly, I'm not looking to spend more than $3k a year in maintenance work. What typically fails on these cares with this type of mileage? Would I be safe for two years? what is the best year for these sport models?
Appreciate any help you can provide as I am new to these cars.
