Boost - usually under $100 repair.
Vent - Could be 1 hour, could be a lot more. No way to tell.
Transmission - $2.5k for rebuild
Front end - $1k
Latch - Probably under $100
Door closer - unknown
Clips - unknown. Probably minor.
Probably closer to $4k in work at an honest shop. Front end and brakes I would just assume any used car needs it. One that doesn't is very rare. About the only thing that I would be PO'd about is the transmission. And that could just be an adjustment.
I wouldn't have paid that much either but it wasn't an out in left field bad deal. A couple of grand off of the sale price and if the list is the only work required it would probably be a worthwhile purchase.
