get the 2002- model, it's facelifted, has a nicer interior and redesigned bumpers etc. if you're looking at the automatic model, then the CVT box in 2002- is more durable, still, not bullet proof. the manual one is.
don't remember the cam belt mileage.
change rear diff fluid every 30k miles, use OEM fluid only.
there have been reports of rust on door window frames, including myself. one user had major rust problem, but we haven't really heard of it since.
