Boost gauge for an amp meter ... good trade.. Pontiac should have done both
My Horn works also. Just in a bad spot and is to hard to find when you need it
"Dimmer Flash" on most cars when you pull the turn signal lever the lights flash.

OH boy are you ready for this
An unknowan accessory is causing excessive wear on the */C Tensioner causing it to rattle (this is the third one)
Passenger side Wheel sensor is hooked up via sewing needle shoved inside the sensor it self..kinda odd but saves a bit of cash and still works!
Alignment is out, in order for the car to go straight the wheel must be turned to a left not a lot, but noticable! started doing this after the new lower ball joint was installed by me on that side. Both rear panels are getting rusty, the passenger side one was fixed with bondo im guessing years ago and now its bubled out badly
Idles kinda crappy
Getts kinda crappy mileage
passenger side rear door will not open no matter how hard i try or frustrated i get at it
runs hot to the point of almost overheating in the summer time even with the 180
Drivers seat left side bolster needs to be recoverd.
Trunk carpeting looks like hell
hood is pitted from rocks
the roof just under the windshield weather stip is starting to rust.
there was a few rust holes under the rear bench seat, i patched it up with Bondo and grey primer.
Heater fan squeals randomly, very annoying
Oil pressure gage pegs its self at MAX most of the time (Sender?)
needs a power steering pump, grumbles most of the time, getting worse..maybe the cause of the SC tensioner getting eatin alive?
In side of rear drivers side door on the bottom is rusty, same with under neath the plastic moulding...im not to sure of the severity under there..i dont think its too bad
Grill is craked.
Front and rear bumpers need to be repainted
Needs new belts

INCASE YOUR THINKING I MUST NOT DO A THING TO MY CAR HERES THE LIST OF REPLACED ITEMS
New ABS Pressure modulating valve unit
New Key lock cylinder
New Shifter to Key linkage
new tires
new front brakes
New High flow catalytic converter (highly Recomeded)
ITs gone through 3 SC belt tensioners, the new one is on its last leg after 3 days!
Drivers side lower ball joint replaced
Born November 1992
Estimated 176 quarts of oil used roughly 4 oil changes a year
Estimated 7326 Gallons of gas burned ( 91 octane!) thats about E to F 3 times a month probally more like 9000 gallons +....but i went mathimatical style here
Estimated 3 sets of tires IF NEW TIRES WERE USED
Exactly 246,257 kms on it to-date
thats 1865.3 kms per month to date ( i don't drive it that much, but thats what the math says)
and hey you asked so you recived
I love my car!

Haahaa...I know all about this. I don't think it'* so much that the horn doesn't work...it'* just hard to find. I never use it because for some reason it'* not where I think it obviously should be. I dunno, maybe it'* just me.

Lots of little things:
The plastic clip for the power mirror adjuster is broke.
Clips for driver side front speaker cover are broke.
Passenger side reflector in the door is missing.
Sunlight sensor fell down behind the dash.
Not to mention all the scratches, scrapes and what not in the paint.
