I've gone through 3 batteries on mine, but that's because I'm ******* retarded and let the ****** sit there with the battery tender unplugged.

It all sounds like regular maintenance and user error. Although when I had a 1.6 one of my rear calipers froze because the parking brake bracket on the caliper became corroded.

When the water pump went and was replaced did you change the timing belt?

Nope, he'll learn that through his "process".

Dear Endat,
You're a ------. Don't ever post here again unless you can learn to somehow break the space-time continuum and stop acting like such a handball bottom pig. I understand that you're a sloppy sow and need discipline , but we have better things to do with our time than read inherently stupid bullshit then read additional bullshit supporting your original bullshit subsequently subjecting the the holy-brain trust of this forum to your wasted bandwidth. Please reevaluate your failure of a life and post again when you can stop wearing Ed Hardy t-shirts.

Love,
Your God

Oh, it also serves to say I've gone through those 3 batteries in 4 years and approximately 5k miles.
