How are 2.5's for high mileage?

I had a 2.0 Cougar last year but sold it as it was underpowered.

I have a chance of a 98 2.5 cat with 124k on the clock with a decent service history altought not full.

Not costing a lot of money as it is a swap plus cash in my favour.I just want a cat again.

As Paul said, make sure it's been well looked after, mines done just over 120K, and still going strong.

Not a happy man,Got a phone call from the guy i was buying the car off and he has told me that the subframe is knackered and he couldn't sell it.

I really wanted another Cougar,At least he was honest.
