Default 407 recurring problems

Feel free to add to this but from memory am i right in thinking that the following are the most usual problems you get on the 407?

1. Bad earth on rear lights causing brake light problems/dash warning
2. Lower ball joints failing at 20K+ miles
3. Heaters stopping working on one side
4. Clutch/DMF failing early
5. DPF clogging/regeneration problems
6. Display in centre console fading when warm
7. Tyre pressure sensors corrode/give wrong readings

Any more to add?

I can vouch for that considering the amount of work carried out on mine.
Fortunately all the expensive work was carried out under warranty.
Keeping fingers crossed now.
And no my middle name in not paranoid.
