Cat C7 Diesel Engine

Hello Everyone - There's an opportunity to buy a 2005 Freightliner short school bus with a Cat C7 and Allison 2000 transmission. Not the van front style. Mileage is 63,000. From my research, the transmission seems good but its hard to get a balanced view on this engine. If you look it up on the web under "problems with", there area lot of negative opinions. From those on this site driving a bus conversion with this engine/drivetrain, what has your experience been? "Would you say don't buy it period"? Mileage is a big positive. Thank you!

Most on here shy away from anything newer than an 04 due to potentially expensive electric and EGR issues.
