+1 Its not too hard to maintain the car if your mechanically inclined. Aside from replacing the turbo/wastegates, its not too difficult or costly. But im not taking into account any AT problems or the water-pump.
The plugs/coils are easy and cheap to change, and if you get a relatively good car with low miles, the other problems shouldnt exist if you take care of it properly. Things happen, but thats the price you pay for boost lol I have an 07 with 38k miles, and in the last 8k miles i have replaced the spark-plugs and a single coil, plus an oil-change. Thats it. Nothing horrible, and its an 07.
