I purchased my 04 MO in July of 04, it is fully equipped with all factory options except chrome wheels. Immediately subscribed to this site and have found it outstanding as a source of info and discussions regarding all aspects of the MO. I feel pretty lucky (knock on wood !) as all of the problems that I have seen individuals experience, rattles, nav problems, alternators, tires, etc etc, have not yet plagued me. I have 8k miles and drive/work in the Maryland/DC/Virginia area. Hope it lasts !!!
