2003 93 Vector.

Purchased: 6/07 57Kmis

Replaced trans fluid-definitely an improvement, smoother quieter.

Changed oil-Couldn't be sure when that last proper one was done, even though the dealer said it was changed just before I purchaed it.

Replaced the rear brakes/rotors- went with drilled/slotted from R1 Concepts. With about 300 mis on these, all is great. I do notice less brake dust, don't know if thats due to drills???

Periodically the passenger rear window/doorlock has issues but not for long.

I am begining to notice a creak coming from the dome light enclosure. Could just need tightening or some lubrication.

For the price I paid, I'm totally stoked on this car- looks hot, not too many on the road, it's fast, comfortable and pretty good on gas mileage.

+1

I had / have exactly the same problems with my 2004 9-3 Vector STD (fuel indicator, Shift knob replaced)

addionally I also changed the coil packs (under warranty)

and I'm little bit suprised because my car has "only" 20000 miles and also I have changed the clutch one time when the car had around 10000 miles :evil:
