Rear main seal, transmission. The rear main seal can only be looked at when on a lift; expensive bugger to replace. The transmission has one of the those stupid "lifetime fluid" changes which means that if you never change the fluid, your transmission will fail in your lifetime. Make sure the tranny fluid was changed regularly - it means a lot.

Window regulator failures are common. Bad pixels on the gauge cluster common. That's about it.

First time I have seen it put that way.
