Head gasket is the major problemm, apart from that theyre not too bad. You get nigley little things like brake light switches failing etc, but its all pretty liveable.

As mentioned above head gaskets but thats been a problem with all e-series, though if you take care of it of the cooling system and keep one eye on the temp gauge you shouldn't have too many problems.
