Turn signals malfunctioned. The A/C stopped working due to a faulty evaporator. The stabilizer bar broke on right side which caused drift/pull. Engine coolant/antifreeze leaked. The ball joint for the right-front tire gave out. The alternator had to be fixed and replaced the battery. Speedometer seemed to be off by 5 mph. The windshield wipers would not work properly and stopped in the middle of a down-pour. The device to lower the spare tire had to be replaced.
