So, i never heard about TC issues on the V6 cars, but scott apparently has.
As to the 3.0. 1) more complex to work on 2) significantly more wear on valve train - cams are actually known to wear through (they are hollow in places from what i hear) 3) some issues associated with aluminum blocks. At minimum check the valve train for wear and ensure a good service history - lots of oil changes.
