It wouldn't be a long article - I'm still trying to find more history on it. I'm the third owner, bought it in 2011 with 397000 on it for $994 plus title, taxes, and tags. Front driver wheel hub and tie rods, fuel pump, new tires, and basic fluid changes. Replaced the AM/FM/Tape with an AM/FM/CD factory unit, and mounted the Garmin GPS with a Panavise mount. One of the headlamp assemblies was cracked when I bought it - bought both left and right replacement assemblies for $20 off Craigslist.

There's some harsh 2-1 downshifts when the fluid's hot, and it's likely due for a spark plug change as well.

Also learned it was exported to Canada, and then re-imported to the US.

It's been getting ~17MPG in overall city driving with the wife's lead-augmented foot.

My wife's getting about the same on the 2007 town and country. It's only at 100K. 17 at 418,000 miles is fantastic!

Ha! My wife has more lead in her foot. :frustrated: Back when we had our '00 T&C Ltd AWD 3.8L, the average fuel mileage was 15-16 mpg, 17 on a good day. Hwy was a totally different story - anywhere from 24-26 depending on how heavy it was loaded.

The most miles we accumulated on any vehicle was the '92 Acclaim we bought new. When I finally had to retire it (leaky heater core), it had 302,500 miles. Other than replacing the 3 speed transmission at 191K (clutches worn out), it just needed normal maintenance - numerous tuneups, oil changes, 5 or 6 sets of tires, shocks, struts, 2-3 mufflers, 6-7 sets of front brakes/rotors, 1 set of rear brakes and I forget what else - maybe a TPS sensor or two. Oh and body work when wife side swiped another vehicle. :pullhair:

Also had a '90 Acclaim (replaced the '92) that had ~240K on it when I sold it, but it had 110K when I bought it for $300. And a '85 LeBaron GTS that had 273K - purchased with only 37K on it.

FWIW - my '06 Ram has 183,500 miles on it (purchased new) and my wife's Journey has ~58K - it's just a baby.

Congratulations, Strat. This makes me feel pretty good about only having 201,000 on my 99 GC now.
