How are the 3.5 gas v8 engines?

Looking for something to drive around town and up to 70 mph on highway. How about their reliability?

there are low compression 3.5's and high compression 3.5's. the latter do well.
70 in a 110 is no problem unless you have an lt95 with some short gearing. Most have no problem ith the speed but economy is wack @ around 10-12
