Help Interpreting an OASIS Report

Looking at a Ford RAV (buyback) Excursion. Here's the OASIS on it:
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/1257860/oas...04ED00090.html.

Would like assistance interpreting this as I've never done so before. I can pick out that the EGR has been replaced, and it appears that there was some transmission and Torque Convertor work as well. Looks like some turbo work too.

This vehicle was a buyback, so ran the Oasis to determine why. I think it stems from repeated transmission problems?

Currently has 120K miles, and I have access (in process of getting them) to the owners records from 54K to its current mileage.

Barring any red flags from the previous owner, are there any major red flags in this Oasis? BTW - I'll be running deltas on the ECT and EOT at the end of this week.

I personally would move along. This thing has been in the shop soooooo many times it is the definition of lemon man. Find one that isn't going to nickel and dime you.

I agree, with Bryan and I would run away from this one. At first with all of the door alignment issues I was wondering if this truck had not been in an accident.

I would be curious to know what has been going on with I for the last 5 years and 70000 miles. Did you do a Carfax on it? How many owners? If you can't get anymore information like service records I would walk away.

Was told there was 1 owner the past 5y/70K miles. Still waiting on the maintenance records to be produced for that era. Current owner is a broker that facilitated this sale for the previous owner and has assured me the records exist

Safe to say that 37 service incidents in the first 50K miles is worthy of walking away. Without those records I think I'll be moving on. Thanks for the response.

Saw that. Are there any known defects for this model year concerning the door alignment or seals? Seems like a weird issue.

If I get the maintenance rec's I'll post them here for continued discussion. If not - I'll likely walk.

Thanks for all the responses. Definitely helpful.
