Electronics and EGR

So much has been said about avoiding the newer than 2005 buses due to the electronics and the EGR system. Do these systems go bad regularly or is it just a case of them being expensive to diagnose and repair if and when they have an issue?

Several of the first generation of EGR motors were grenades. VT365/Powerstroke 6.0 are the ones we most frequently talk about, but they were hardly alone.

Edit: Also the emissions requirements start for 2004, not 2005. You may find some 2004 model year buses with 2003 drivetrains. For example, Navistar discontinued the T444E mid-2003 but you may find 2004 model year buses with that engine.
