Engine head blew at 34,000 miles.
Partial transmission failuire at 47k.
Speed sensor failure at 54k.
Tensioner pulley locked up, and water
pump failed (bearing).
High-speed side of radiator fan unit
locked-up, resulting in overheat
condition, resulting in oil boiling

Electronic window motor locked-up.
