I've got 105k on the clock of my 3.7 and the only thing I've done to it outside of routine maintainence is to replace a timing chain tensioner that went out around 85k. Other than that, it has been a trouble free engine. I haven't seen many of these with mileage that high but I suspect that's because I work at a dealership and not an independent garage. If the current owner has all the maintainence records and the services were done regularly, I wouldn't be afraid of it.

As for the HVAC issue, it may have already had the updated parts installed and even if it hasn't, this isn't a big issue.
