The automatic transmission accumulator cover can leak due to a failed o-ring. Replacing the o-ring and cover will commonly correct this issue.
There is an issue where the transmission can have a torque converter problem, or the computer monitoring the torque converter can misinterpret the information, and in either case this can cause the Check Engine Light (MIL) to illuminate. The problem will need to be diagnosed and depending upon what is causing the issue, the transmission will have to be repaired or the computer replaced.
The AC evaporator can collect mold and give a foul smell. The evaporator will have to be disinfected or replaced to repair this issue.
On certain 2WD models the front hub can leak grease. Installing a new updated gasket will repair the leak.
Certain models may have a vibration issue at highway speeds that could be due to uneven tire pressures, tire rim out of specs, wheels out of balance, AC compressor bracket bolts not torqued correctly, misalignment of the steering shaft coupler, improper ride height, or wheel alignment out of adjustment. A qualified technician is needed to sort out these problems and correct them.
The air conditioner may stop working due to icing up of the evaporator, generally caused but a faulty evaporator thermostat. Replacement of the failed evaporator thermostat will be required to correct this concern.

The front brake rotors can warp and cause a vibration when braking. The rotors will need to be machined or in cases where they are worn to thin, replaced to correct this issue.
On certain models moisture can get into the rear wheel bearing and cause a noise. Replacing the rear wheel bearing is needed to correct this concern.
On certain models the fuel gauge will not read full due to excessive resistance in the sending unit. Replacing the sending unit in the fuel tank will commonly repair this issue.
