When I was shopping a couple of years ago, the online consensus was that the 03 and 04's were to be avoided, with 03 being worst than 04. Like DrewP said, if it's an auto, look out for transmission cooler leak for those years. Look carefully for electrical gremlins. These years have a fiber optic communication system that can be difficult and expensive to diagnose and fix.
