      Weak batteries tend cause issues with newer vehicles, even when it seems to start okay. Hopefully, that's all it was.

      Lack of gauges seems to indicate a DIM issue. You could grab a used 01-04 DIM from a JY, swap it in and see what happens. No moonroof could be the UEM. Do the remote locks work?

      Well, putting the original axles back in appears to have eliminated the vibrations when accelerating. So, that's good.

      Mostly wear and tear stuff but also a lot of 200k maintenance items. You're probably past the worst of it.

      Whatever is used for the 235/45-17 wheel/tire combo. They are black, IIRC. And things still rub, worse now that it's lowered. Even the 215/55-16 winter setup rubs slightly.

      It looks like there's a 2nd set of door handles in the back. Hence, my confusion. I recall a 2-door hatchback being the only body style. I took one for a test drive many years ago.
