Duratec Durability and Stuff

I am looking at a 2004 Focus SE sedan with the Duratec engine / auto tranny. Has 142,000 on the car. What can you guys tell me about the Duratec engine? The good, the bad and the ugly? Any quirks with it that I should look at right off?

Buying it for my daughter for college. She might put 5,000 miles a year on it.
