The water pump failing is an issue, but it is not as bad of an issue as people are making it out to be. As long as you change the coolant at the recommended intervals, you are generally fine. Also, the only time you hear about these issue is when they actually fail. There are plenty of owners out there who do not have this issue even after 200k miles. From what I have been told, it is the coolant becoming acidic and causing the pump to fail. Just change the coolant and you are fine. Also you normally hear about these issue when people beat the hell out of the car, do minimal maintenance and then complain the car is crap. Not saying everyone who has had this issue is that way, but a lot of people are.
