The front suspension sounds; bad lots of squeaks, rattles, and vibrations. Turns-out the car's front struts went bad and had to totally be replaced.

There is a electrical problems it want go over 10 miles and the ac stopped working and now the Windows don't work.
I'm pretty sure all cars with lots of miles on have this problem. I replaced all 4 struts and now my car drives awesome! Note: I did have to install 4 "shims" so the car would pass alignment. A shim is a special bolt that is sort of wobbly in the middle, it lets you adjust the angle of your struts just by spinning the bolt. A little weird, but my car drives better than new now.
