Coil packs went out too fast. I blame the design of the engine, placing them under the headers.
Starter went out. Not bad, but replacing it was impossible!!!
Timing belt needs replacing far too often, every 25k. Haven't yet done it though.
Alternator went out, $450 fix.
Power steering went out as a result of poor treatment by previous owner (turning without moving).
Dash keeps falling apart.
Multiple cooling system failures.
Engine oil temp skyrocketing.
Motor mounts needed replacing as a result of abuse by the previous owner.
Parking brake gone as well as both back calipers (previous owner).
This particular model, when it was stock, is filled with flaws like the fact that it has a 195 degree thermostat when the lube range of oil is no more than 180.
There is no stock oil cooler besides the tiny water jacket..
That air intake is very badly restricted as well as the exhaust.
I'm not one for floor shifters and it has one, but that's just me.
The brakes are too small for a vehicle this heavy.
Speaking of overweight, this car weighs 3600lbs!!
If you want this car, which I suggest 100% for those willing to devote their time and money for the perfect car, I recommend very serious mods are done before thoroughly enjoying.
As far as suspension, there is a site called Total Engine Overkill that has all suspension and brake mods.
Air intake can be easily done by moving the battery over to the area where the air box used to be, and run piping with a large filter.
Exhaust can be done by removing the cat and mufflers and putting in whatever you like (no headers, just stock).
Engine should be rebuilt with all possible mods including cams and big injectors.
Transmission should be replaced with the 4T65-E or better.
Steering rack should be replaced by a rack and pinion set.
0-60 in under 5!!
After these are done, and before, the car should be personally inspected every week to prevent future failures.
