I'm trying to collect as many small easily fixable problems in my car as possible.
-I have a driver side window that hasn't worked since 2005, and I can see the cut wire when I open the door widely. -I have a short somewhere right off the battery that occasionally requires me to pop the hood and jiggle some cables to get the car to start. -I had my hood replaced after a minor accident and the mechanic never hooked up wiper fluid tubes. -I have a very slow coolant leak somewhere that just requires me to get more coolant than I should every time I get the oil changed. -When it's very cold outside (or also very humid) my driver side door doesn't latch and I need to hold it closed. -My heat stopped working this year. -The air conditioning occasionally doesn't work on very hot days but surprisingly works very well most of the time. -Sometimes the the back light for the speedometer goes out for days and then randomly comes back on (this sucks because I mostly drive at night). -The car in general has really poor sealing and I often need to scrape the inside of windshield in addition to the outside. -Tape player doesn't work
But it's a 2001 Sable with 170,000 miles so I'm not putting another dollar into it. New car is one bad day away from being purchased.
