couple things: original battery? the battery probably went because of the insanely harsh environment of where you live. ive seen batteries last a year, or ten. stop and go city driving in general creates more wear and tear, which is likely where the premature clutch wear and brake wear came from. being close to salt water is like giving cancer to a car. the exhaust sees tons of moisture and the salinity in the air doesnt really help either, in fact it accellerates rust and corrosion. Its a really good idea to rinse the bottom of the car a couple times during the winter to get the salt off, and in your case once every month or two. the gears going... at that low mileage no transmission should be giving way unless its beat to a pulp or defecive. enjoy that car!
