I did some research on the 01-03 4.6iS, unfortunately those things are pretty notorious for expensive repairs. Go do some reading on xoutpost.com (or something like that) and you will quickly sway your mind and run away, they sounded just as bad as Range Rovers, maybe even worse?

Tranny issues at about 160-200K, electrical problems, rear SLS problems, plus the many common issues associated with the cooling system of V8's.

As awesome as those trucks are (especially in Imola red), make sure it has extended warranty or it is really low km's so as to at least give you a year or two of somewhat trouble free driving.

Nothing is sexier than the 4.XiS' on the road though.
