    Think the Op says he is a mechanic not the previous owner. It's like anything, something can go wrong no matter how well it is looked after. I find as long as it has been serviced and had regular oil changes then usually it is only minor things that pop up every now and then.

    Ive had a few now and only thing Ive had issues with is inlet manifold motor which is quite common on the 3.0 and 2.7, when they go wrong it puts the management light on, car still drives fine but light is annoying, they can be taken off and serviced which sometimes is a fix.
