Illustration for article titled I like lists...

... so let’s list what’s currently wrong with our cars. Here’s mine:

- wheel speed sensor causing Christmas tree lights (and loss of TC, ABS)

- something has come loose and is rattling/rubbing around the left-rear wheel or brake


- needs new rear brake pads and discs all around

- new front struts contact the sway bar, so I need to relocate the sway bar or get adjustable links


- front diff is slowly leaking

- engine skid plate is pressed against front diff and needs reshaping and/or spacers


- rust on the rear hatch is getting very worrisome

- a passenger seat belt buckle is broken

- at least one front speaker is dead

- the stitching has started to come out on the driver’s seat

- there’s an exhaust “tick” from a bad gasket (i hope), a hole (maybe) or a cracked manifold (please god, no)


- weeping radiator and a severely corroded power steering feed line, they’re ticking time bombs!

- spare tire wheel is a mess, I could get all the wheels refinished or just buffed and then Plastidipped


- driver side headlight is getting yellow again

That about covers it for the 4Runner. Don’t get me started my wife’s Passat...
