Default "Rehabbing a 2005"

I "inherited" my elderly mother's 2005 base model, auto trans, with 39,000 miles on it. So far I have ...

- Replaced both front lower control arm verticle bushings
- Replaced lower engine torque strut
- Replaced faulty camshaft position sensor
- Replaced spark pugs and wires
- Recharged a/c system (no leaks found)
- Installed factory speed control kit (b/c it did not have)
- Replaced radiator fan module (fan motor died)

So, are there any other common issues with these PTC's I should expect?

Thank you!

At 39,000 miles you should be good for a while unless she rode the brakes and wore them out.
