What things went wrong with the car... Gee where do I begin?
How about we start with the Mass Air Flow sensor. Which is a $200 part if you do it yourself.
Then the bumper literally fell off, I'm sure it was because it gets pulled every time you get near a curb or a parking stop. But what the hell, if they make a bumper so low and so far forward?
Then how about the engine mounts are broken, the inner wheel well fell off, the shocks went, both of the half shafts (CV joints, boots, and axles) went bad. The tie rod ends sound like they are bad, but I'll be honest, I haven't actually looked because I am afraid.
The dashboard and center console are falling apart, the fancy cupholder rig, that is ridiculously expensive has been broken since I bought the car. The glove box broke, the big plastic "tab" that holds it in is pathetic. The sun visor broke, and the grabber that hold it in place.
Oh, and the trunk doesn't open because the solenoid broke, and neither does the gas cover (so we can never close it all the way, or we won't be able to get it open again).
Then the doors stopped locking with the remote, then they stopped locking altogether. Now the front and rear drivers doors have to be locked manually. The interior lights don't come on when you open either door either. Also now the door chimes as though it were open if you rest your arm on it for 1 second. It is REALLY irritating if you are in the car for more than ten minutes.
There was no armrest ever, and the seats are made of the most stain attractant material known to mankind. The seats were tan colored, and I got a good deal on the car when I bought it (or so I thought, until I went to the insurance agency and they told me I paid book value) so I didn't really think anything about cleaning it as a result. The seats were absolutely filthy when I bought it, I thought for sure a mechanic owned it and didn't care about the seats. I eventually ended up steam cleaning the seats professionally just to have them end up getting filthy again when a single drop of WATER hits them. Now they are completely embarrassingly filthy looking.
Also car eats oil like crazy, and now the engine light is on and the code read that cylinders 2,3, and 4 are misfiring.
