Sounds like you got a car that was not well maintained before you got it. The newer Honda's and Nissans (what was Datsun) are not the reliable cars they once were. My daughters Nissan has gone through a few starters and alternations.
Some of the things sound like normal maintenance or caused by damage. By the way have you checked on the price of a new headlight for a Honda or Toyota? 250 to 400 and that is for plastic!
O2 sensor
foglight lens (2)
headlight lens (50 bucks for a piece of glass)
How many miles on the car? Most of these components have a life of at least 200,000
1991 Mazda Miata 174000
1991 Subaru 189,000 Winter beater

got rid of:
1984 VW Vanagon 195,000

1973 280SE 4.5 (boy do I regret that)
