As long as you go into it with the understanding that it's a crapshoot, I think you'll be okay. Most the fixes can be done by yourself if you're mechanically inclined, that's to say 4-5 star inclined, not 1-2 star. The only thing I'd add is the parts from this generation are going up in price quite a bit and becoming obsolete. For me that would be one reason to get something a little more recent regardless of mileage. I also probably would not do this for my primary vehicle, because some of the fixes will easily take the vehicle out of operation for day/week as you gather special tools, parts on backorder, etc.

As much as it is tempting to find and take advantage of a well serviced vehicle, miles are miles and the truth is a lot of parts are at or beyond their service life and simply worn out.
