Theres nothing really troublesome about the 172 really. Expect a few rattles and squeaks, and other minor build-quality issues that youd expect to get with a car costing 12k. They dont need much running-in - just a few days to make sure nothings going to fall off. Expect to get an airbag warning light on at some stage - nothing to worry about - its just the wiring under the seats and your dealer has a tech-note telling him how to fix it.
Buy lots of tyres whenever you see them for sale at a good price! Save up loads of ££££ for track days!
