One thing I know about them is the air pump for emissions and one way valves for that system are prone to going out. Also expensive IIRC and mostly dealer only for parts that I have seen

my brother had one with the 3.5 that just kept on running with 200+k on it. thing just would not die.

My old man had a first gen with the 4.0 and it was a nice enough ride he never had any real problems with it but yeah its just another northstar basically so the typical problems apply.

the 3.5 liter short star v6 was basically a 4.6 minus two holes
those had a fairly good track record

I loved my 4.0. They blow headgaskets though and repairing them is expensive. I also had some transmission problems with james's girlfriend the 4T80e.

There is an autobahn package that came in some of the early ones that allows you to do 140 mph.
