When things break on these cars they are ridicuslously expensive. So you're going to recommend to somebody, that is obviously on a limited budget and wants a high mileage vehicle, to buy a vehicle that there is a high probability of costly repairs?
Engine seals out of warranty...$4K.
EGR cooler out of warranty...$2K.
Crack in an aluminum a/c line...$1K.
Any domestic or Japanese vehicle that is mass produced and is much cheaper to repair would be a better recommendation fwiw.
