120000 80 Rear bushing worn out - replaced to reduce interior noise (rattles) and improve ride. 
146000 26 The blower motor resistor failed - so the fan would only run on "HIGH" - replacement of resistor corrected the problem. Resistor appeared to be rusted from AC moisture.

175000 300 Passenger side rear window mechanism failed. Replaced with new part from Toyota. Have replaced both mechanisms for the rear windows in the last year...repair shop said the new part is more robust than the OEM, so it should last.
