Motor mount--via a local mechanic--$200 for the part because it has gold in it to prevent sensors from sparking.

Other than that the only "costs" I've seen are regular maintenance. $60 every 3 mo for synthetic oil (I drive a lot), $200 battery, gas has been the most expensive at $50 to top it off mid grade.
