im buying 06 5.7 Hemi on saturday~help~

Hello everyone, I was wondering if you could tell me what should I look for(good and bad) when buying 2006 Hemi Commander? I have my eye on this nice black XK 30mls away from me. Its got 75,000 mls on it and its loaded. What are the good and bad about that year? and finally what are the big differences between 06 and lets say 10' model?
Thank you in advance guys!

Small difference in dash design. 2010 has a little better NAV/Radio, power liftgate and 18" wheels. Really, that is about it.

Make sure you test to see if 4 low works.... if it had a recent recall done it might not have the ability to shift the tcase into neutral or 4low

Hope it comes w/ some possible warranty to cover some repairs that may need to be done. Items like:

Sunroof drain holes (may clog up, then suddenly soak your floor panels and the A pillar headliner, etc.), brittle door handles, loose right side ext mirror (not the assembly enclosure, but the actual mirror itself), air inlet housing can fail/break as well (plastic housing that contains the recirculation/vent flapper; the housing and/or actuator may break/fail), and make sure all the 'lights' on the center console light up, and random stalling on cold starts (many speculate bad/cracked tranny filter). Other than that, mechanically, my HEMI XK has been flawless.

Sunroof drain holes- 10 minutes to clean out.
Door handles -yeah that sucks
Loose mirror - 5 minute fix with a dab of glue
Air inlet - gear is known to fail. $30 for new upgraded part and maybe 10 minutes to replace. Housing failure isnt very common from what ive seen.
