Looking at buying an 04 fx35 in 2019

Hello everyone. I am currently looking for a new to ke vehicle and came across a beautiful infinity fx35/04.my concern is im new to buying vehicles and bought my first car cheap 03 lincoln ls v8. But have been spoiled in cars ive driven or borrowed all top end luxery.
So my question is what should i expect from am 04 in 2019 another money put like my Lincoln.
Okay so the car has 223,000km Which is high. But out of all the cars ive looked at evem ones from 2012 it has absolutely no rust anywhere thats visivle from the outside. This fx35 is fully loaeded all options and has a tiny amount of the bubbles on the dash ive seen pics of 2012s with worse which leaves me to believe its been kept inside and oil guarded often. Interior looks to be near mint (viewing from window) it has new tires and 2 previous owners. The price is 6k Canadian. I am currently waiting for my test drive. But im really on the fence as my current vehicle has been one thing after another just cant have a repeat. What should I expect?

I have the 03' model. bought it in 2007 with 63K miles from original owner who was some spoiled rich girl in Plano,TX. had a couple of interior abuse issues that I got parts for and thats all it needed. I now have 168K on it and used it for a daily driver until 2015. still drive it all the time! the front and passenger seats were garbage leather and you wont find one without torn leather. even mine are shot and I am still looking for a solution. other than that I have had no issues. Great car!

others on this forum have posted absolute nightmares about error codes and electrical problems that they have spent thousands on. Make sure you run an OBD scanner to pull any possible codes.

The window trim on the 04-05 was black and will likely be very faded so expect that. I put some very nice smoked visors from AWB and it looks awesome.

Drive the car and test everything! in it. there is a CAN bus that carries ALL the engine and electrical information so there is little direct wiring to troubleshoot. my power mirrors currently dont work due to an issue there so be forwarned.
