    My '08 SXT had 98,131 miles on it when I bought it in December (5 days before Christmas). I've put about 1,000 miles on it since then. I'm second owner

    Some may think those miles slightly high, but the Carfax is absolutely beautiful, IMO. This is one of the cleanest vehicles I've seen for its age. Like new in/out. It was first purchased in Kokomo, Indiana. Spent two month in Kokomo. It then went to Texas for 6 years, and back to Kokomo until I bought it.

    I have all service records for it from day one! It has been Chrysler dealer serviced it's entire life. It got a tune up, fresh oil, new plugs, wires, belt, and shocks back in June. And the dealer I bought it from put new tires on it!

    I also found out that the previous owner was a Chrysler employee who recently retired. He is a Vietnam Vet who babied this vehicle, and always kept it garaged. He traded it in for a Chrysler 300.

    All in all, I'd say I got a good deal at $9,700. Plus the dealer threw in a 3 year/36k mile power-train warranty, with 1/2 price oil changes. And they gave me a Crew Car Wash book, which will last me about six months. BONUS!

    225,000 k on my '07 Nitro(bought new). On third set of brakes, and have replaced the clutch fan hub twice(every 100kk) Having some tip start problems where the starter runs on. No other major issues so I guess so far I'm lucky.

    Mines an 09 with 56,000 miles on it. Bought it last June and had nothing go wrong with it yet ( fingers crossed ) Love the car though and can't think of anything that I would replace it with

    102k on a 2008 R/T. Replacing #5 fuel injector this weekend and need a hard drive replacement in the head unit, other than that I have had zero problems. Purchased it 13 months ago with 92k and no reported repairs.

    08 SLT 319,467 miles. Purchased new with 23 miles on it. I’m on my 5th set of tires, 3rd set of breaks, 5x coil plugs, 4th set of cooper spark plugs. Replaced the A/C compressor and getting ready to replace the serp belt for the 3rd time. And need to replace the windshield. Has some bubbles of rust on the tailgate by the release and some clear coat damage from rocks around the rear wheels. The rear lock no longer works had to remove it due to it breaking just haven’t replaced it yet.
    It has its own personality with her squeaky noises and groans but she’s still going strong. I have only used Mobile 1 full sys oil and live by SeaFoam. I use it in the fuel every 5k miles and add it to the oil every 10k.
    Needless to say, I don’t know how much longer she has but will keep ya posted!

    Not as high as some as only 2 years were back and forth to work.
    Just passed 240k KM.
    Only averages 21k KM per year.
