Anyway, I appreciate all the responses from everyone. Very helpful. Still kinda undecided lol. Im thinking if it drives perfect, makes no rattling noises, shifts perfect, passes a pre purchase inspection while paying attention to the common trouble areas that I have written down, I should be ok.
Of course, now that Ive said that, on the drive home the water pump will probably go out...the turbos will start rattling...all sorts of leaks will appear . lol
