About the only "COMMON" problem I have noticed, is the headlight ballasts go bad and the headlight assembly has to be replaced.
It is a fairly expensive repair.

My '06 Performance also has a little vibration in the brakes... but only sometimes.. not all the time.

I have almost 100,000 on mine.

The rear brakes on these cars are well known to have uneven deposits IE. "warp".

Things to watch out for fluid leaks, especially around the rear valve cover. I'm experiencing a coolant crossover leak currently. And while I was under warranty a trans fluid line fitting failed and needed to be replaced.

sometimes mine turns into a 6 story robot and fights other alien robots, but states "its for the betterment of mankind" ...whatever...
My heated seats have issues, and thats about it.
