Once you verify that the engine is sound, proceed to blow the dealer's mind by bringing up the head-gasket issue, offer a substantially lower figure (don't be insulting), then be prepared to walk.
Don't fall in love with this car.

definitely search on here about the dohc 2.5 l phase 1 motors head gasket problems, and check for the telltale signs (oil and exhaust bubbles in the radiator coolant overflow tank, etc.) and haggle down the price (figure 1500-2000 for new headgaskets done by a shop, possibly more depending on location, and aim to knock it off the dealers asking price)
