I just remembered one more big problem area, the belt tensioner and pulleys. These need to be replaced "early". I had mine serviced by he dealer...new belt and 2 pulleys..was told the tensioner was not an issue. A couple of K later the stupid tensioner collapsed. Imagine my surprise... and luck...it happened in my driveway!
