2012 Mitsubishi Galant 2.4L Non-turbo

I plan on having this Galant for a long time so I've been researching some what the common problems are or overlooked maintenance to look for.
Can anyone add to this list perhaps:?

I found I need to change the coolant and thermostat, I like to use the newer slightly more expensive Peak Lifetime coolant is the bomb no more every 5 year changing but seems only Napa carries it. There's a lot of money to be made on non-lifetime coolant for the regular stores lol.
Spark plugs and wires, transmission fluid.

From reading reviews on multiple sites, otherwise these vehicles seem pretty reliable.
I did see one problem is the crank position sensor can go out and causing sudden engine stalls and or even no start. So I'll watch for that in the future.

I see the engine has a plastic intake manifold but I didn't see anyone complaining about problems with it like the plastic cracking or not sealing over the years..
Oh I still need to run the vin number to check for any recalls.

Anyone know of anything to say or add to this?

Thank-you for the help
