06 production VW 3.6L VR6 motors used in the Passat, Tourag, and early Porsche Cayannes.
they have the dreaded oil=pump bolt failure.
I know, because my 1st one went 22 days into ownership....VW replace the car with a doppleganger.
I had VWoA sell me an extended warranty in case it happens in the replacement car.

Build your car for yourself, not what an internet forum tells you.
Brake light switch
Steering column lock
Ford Ranger/Mazda Trucks:
Too much to list
also the BMW electrical systems, and their hpfp
And more ....
The Pontiac Grand Prix GTP S/C(my very first car) has a big problem with the transmission. IIRC, the car comes stock with 280 ft/lb of torque. And the torque rating of the transmission...also 280 ft/lb of torque. There's a solid chance it'll fail at stock form, never mind how it'll fare if it were modded.
