firstly the issue about heads means nothing...... a few may crack on the nissan but a few may crack ona toyota, I heard that but still bought my GU...and guess what ????? no cracked head.
All I have ever heard is " I know someone " or A friend of a friend.
It also doesnt mean everyone or heaps of them crack heads.
The 2.8 IS a tough motor and will take you anywhere you want to go.
Yes it has to be serviced ...but so does every other car.
Yes its timing belt needs replaceing every 100000 km...but so does every other car with a timing belt.
Yes it needs to have the coolant changed but so does every other car.
I sold mine 2 months ago and there wasnt a single entry in the service book for the last 8 years....WHY ??
Because I changed the oils and filters myself regularily. It did me well.
Service books are not always truthfull either.
Good luck on what ever you buy and enjoy.
