Oil may seep from between the oil filter bracket and the cylinder block. Polishing the mating surfaces between the bracket and the cylinder block (to remove rough machining marks) will fix the problem.
The power vent window actuators may separate at the ball and socket joint. To fix the problem, replace the power vent window actuator socket on the rear quarter glass assembly.
Backlight (rear window) water leaks are common. Conduct a water test to verify the location of the leak. The lift gate trim should be removed and the glass resealed from inside.
If a "honk" noise occurs during low-speed parking lot maneuvers, replace the power steering lines and/or power steering rack and perform revised procedures to bleed the system.
While driving through deep or blowing snow/water, moisture may enter the rear brake drums, causing rust to develop on the rear brake drum and shoe friction surfaces. Over time, repeated (and sometimes infrequent) exposure to the snow can lead to temporary freezing of the rear brake linings to the drums. A revised brake drum and brake drum backing plate is available.
Caused by the parking brake actuator lever(s), AWD-equipped vehicles may experience a rattle in the area of the rear wheels. Installing a foam isolator on each parking brake actuator lever will fix the problem.
The transmission has numerous problems; symptoms can range from shuddering to completely dying. The majority of the TSBs (service bulletins) require an overhaul of the transmission. Updated internal parts are available.  
A loose timing chain on early models will produce a rattle (in the front of the engine) because the chain hits the guide. The timing chain should be replaced (the cam sprocket should always be replaced at the same time). Remove and discard the timing chain guide; on later V6 models, the guide has been eliminated.
The transmission has numerous problems; symptoms can range from shuddering to completely dying. The majority of the TSBs (service bulletins) require an overhaul of the transmission. Updated internal parts are available. 
Often when replacing the front left wheel speed sensor, the wrong part is used (it's from a later model year). If the wrong sensor is used, it can damage the wheel speed sensor wiring.
The transmission has numerous problems; symptoms can range from shuddering to completely dying. The majority of the TSBs (service bulletins) require an overhaul of the transmission. Updated internal parts are available. 
Excessive smoke from the exhaust, lack of power, and a grinding or scraping noise from the turbocharger can indicate turbo failures. The most frequent cause of turbocharger failure is a lack of frequent oil changes.
Due to corrosion at the pivot, the driver side window wiper may fail. The pivot must be replaced.
Windows may not roll up or down, resulting in a "ratcheting" noise. This is often caused by the plastic ribbon gear (flex tracks) on the regulator that breaks. Flex tracks are easily replaced by removing the door trim panel.
During turning, squeaks can come from the strut area; the strut mount assembly should be replaced.
