at 50,000+ miles or so you have NOTHING to worry about as long as the car has been properly maintained. that's the key. we have a thread here.. the "high mileage club" and there are many many members with beyond 100k miles running strong.
as far as daily driving- it's a great car. i unfortunately didnt get to experience the stock form of my car for very long. i only had it a few days before i started modding. definitely take one for a test drive and see how you like it.
& last but not least- as a whole they are very easy to work on. every maintenance & modification has been done in my own garage with basic tools. if you have any general mechanic/car knowledge, you'll be fine.
the ONLY thing that you need to do is research research research if you plan on modding. this isnt your typical tuner car [honda, srt, etc] you cant just throw stuff on & expect it to run properly.
