1989 200Q, 107k when purchased in 1995, 233k now. 4 times:
1: bolt dropped out of tie rod where it attachs to the rack (about 160k
miles). Fortunately, I was just backing out of the garage at the time.
About 150k miles, I think, don't have records near me at the moment.
2: ignition module went bad. About 180k miles.
3: clutch master cylinder failed. About 200k miles.
4: radiator sprung a leak. About 220k miles.
