A few pricy problems that I have found with the sc400 have are:
The power steering pump tends to leak down onto the alternator killing it.
Water seals for the headlights.
Instrument needles and panel light bulbs.
Many coolant system problems.
Timing belt job isn't cheap.
Climate control display failure.
Problems with the starter, electrical.
Can't run it on anything but Unleaded premium (91 oct+)
Rase the motors output and the transmission won't last long without upgrades to handle it.
This is the short list.
