I have always had my heart set on a Gen3 OB H6 for a LONG while and have been waiting patiently for my '99 Altima to give up the ghost. It's currently at 400K and counting. The front radiator/frame support is pretty much non-existent due to rust and the engine is getting VERY tired amongst other issues. I've come across a low mileage Gen3 OB H6 at a dealership. I haven't had a chance to go take a look at it but it seems promising and of course they also want entirely too much for it. As I said in the title I've been a Gen 3 lurker on the forum for a while and there seems to be the trend that the 3.0s are showing more and more head gasket issues (age/mileage?). I'm ok with minor replacement stuff (bearings, struts, linkage etc) but the head gasket issues scares me and may be a deal breaker. I can't really justify purchasing a vehicle that trends are showing is going to need an engine replaced at 175,000ish. I drive ALOT. About 80-85% highway. But I'm also very good with maintenance and issue recognition and repair with my vehicles. So I guess I need your opinions and suggestions on how to proceed. Thank you guys in advance.
