OK, in order to not make this single post 2 pages long, I'm only going to get into the things that don't work and not things that are broken/damaged.

*overhead courtesy lights in back seat don't work
*rear driver'* window lets down but not up
*trunk release button on key fob doesn't work
*power antenna doesn't go up or down

One or more of the following: bearing, lifter, oil pump... anything else that moves. Something ain't working right.

Hope you have some time to do some reading.
A/c, lights on the heat/A/C controls, ABS, right Rear window (although it did mysteriously start working the other day for no reason, but it will stop again like it did last time), power steering (how fun that it), something causing low oil pressure (bearings, bad pump?), overhead cigarette lighter, the garage door opener compartment (the wife actually broke it off), the light under the hood and in the trunk (I broke that one )
and probably some more stuff I am forgetting about.

Franky:
Engine
Transmission
Power Steering has morning sickness
A/C
Cruise Control
Front Struts & Mounts are making noise
Rear Wheel Bearing
Compass Inaccurate
Rear passenger door latch only works 50% of the time
Blower needs new coupler
BAD exhaust leak at downpipe to cat gasket

Alero:
Nothing, its nice to have a car that is 100% ok with no problems.
