Question Any problems with 92 300SD? Al head? 1st model year?

Hi, Im looking at a 1992 300SD with 208K on it for $5200.00 and I wanted to see if any one out there can tell me if this is a good model year? Im concerned that since its the 1st model year there may be some issues that were worked out down the road.

Its in remarkably good shape but Im reading that this 6 cyl model has an aluminum head and is prone to cracking. Are there any other things to look out for? Im going to take some shots and post them

Any thoughts on the car are welcome.. Thanks Chris

Very unreliable and repair prone model year. That engine was the same rod bender that was used in the late W126 350SD's. It is a bit overpriced too. I wouldn't touch it.
