The engine is as good as it was mantained previously. it's hard to say. These days I'm also looking for one of these, a V6, at a dealer for about 3-4k with 30days/1month warranty they seem like a good deal.

20,810

The cam chains on the V-6 for a vehicle that old is iffy? I purchased a 93 new, and maintained it meticulously with oil changes every 3K and never driven over 70. The rear chain guide went out at 60K requiring a new engine. I've seen the same engines go over 200K with no problems. Just a design problem made into the V^ SOHC engine.
