A 200 with 26K miles is a new car. Try towing a 10,000 GVW 24 foot enclosed trailer (loaded) with a 1993 360 Magnum Ramcharger 150 over the same distance (in August) twice with no issues.
I was told a long time ago by an old racer that as long as you maintain them and don't do anything stupid, Mopars will never let you down. Durability has most often not been an issue - just the peripheral "fluff stuff."
Unfortunately, people's expectations are that their vehicles endure despite giving them reasonable care.
My Caliber has never left me stranded or died on me. But, that doesn't mean that the constant replacing of my front suspension, or other parts is a good thing either. That falls under durability for me. A 6 year old vehicle with less than 70,000km should not have had the front suspension replaced twice, nor should it need it a third time, as it sounds mine does now.
None of our other Chrysler vehicles have ever left us stranded, or just died, but it's the little things that get annoying (and expensive) after a while.
