John, I would know some of the issues that one would expect to have or experience with this vehicle with 121,000- 140,000 miles . This is a V6 engine non turbo . So just the facts, please.

water pumps are common on the 3.5 when they get up in mileage its a 11 hour job to replace

i have seen quit a few with transmission shutters from internal failure. common for ball joint failure and sway bar links with mileage... I would suggest a pre purchase check up before purchase and a long test drive to make sure it shifts as it should... But they are a great riding and roomy car.. They really dont have a ton of issues...But the main common ones I listed

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
