The 03 aero with sport seats is a wonderful car. Still very competitive with today's sedans from a comfort, safety and fuel consumption perspective. Reviewing the maintenance report, it confirms that you had a great service provider under the assumption that your suspension and front end work is due to bumpy road, especially in winter conditions. It also seems that you drive on many curved roads or are parallel parking on a regular basis. Your mechanics seem to be replacing parts that are normally due and are sometimes leveraging the fact that they should do 2 parts at once due to age, mileage and poor access. A classic example is the starter and alternator. Some typical parts that are missing from the list are the infamous heater valve beside the drivers firewall, the CPS (crankshaft position sensor) and perhaps the radiator hoses (probably performed with the rad). If not already done, you will be looking at a new water pump, drive belt, pulleys and tensioners soon. Since they are hard to see, you are typically running with broken air filter mounts but it is rare that a 9-5 will respond in protest. I would also think that you will be coming up, on a predictive basis for some AC work. If not being done regularly, I would highly suggest that you keep rustproofing the vehicle to ward off the ravages of salt and ensure that your newer rear brake lines and front PS lines are well coated with inhibitor. Thank you for submitting your results to the forum for review. Wishing you the very best with your Aero in the coming years, in solidarity, Dave the Ice Age Knave.
