Very impressive; thanks for posting that. It kinda made me sad actually as I scrolled down the list. Even though I have a Gen 2, I found myself mumbling: yep, I've got that problem; or yep, I've had to pay to fix that. The one that really caught my eye was the door handle replacement. I'm not sure if that was a subcomponent defect on Gen 1, but I had to do that type of fix myself on my HET.
Live it up: There will be plenty of time to be old when you die.

Supposedly on the first gen, primarily the unpainted door handles are prone to breaking. In the various vibes we've owned, none of mine have broke. :D
