Since the 3rd and 4th generations have a thread about mileage, and I just hit a milestone on my 2009, I decided to start this thread for 5th generation owners.

I hope the "High Milers Club" still exist, I want to get the 200,000 mile license plate frame.

Just bought my used 2016 T&C a few weeks ago with 28,000 on it. Since I am retired and average about six miles a week I don't guess I will be breaking any records here. :(
Maybe 30 years from now you break a recird for the 2016 with the lowest mileage! :)

Is yours an ex-rental?

Congrats on 200K! I only have 104K on my '11.

The reason I bought one, besides having a handicapped wife, was all of the miles folks on here seem to get out of them and every used one advertised had a gazillion miles one it. Figured the T&C would outlast me.

I have 85,000 km, on my 2014. But speaking of high mileage, there is someone, who goes to the same mechanic, as I, who has 520,000 km, on a 2008 Caravan.

I'm on my third one. First two I put over 300,000 miles on them, sold both with perfect original motor and transmissions. Engine oil change every 3000 miles or so, never changed transmission fluids on any of them.

Good choice, my 2012 is also an ex-rental, got it very, very cheap.

Never changed transmission fluid? Wut

Exactly!

I never change ATF on any of my vehicles, went well over 500,000 miles on some, never had a transmission problem (other than involved on an accident).

The way I see it, those who remove transmission pan are more prone to have transmission problems than those who never remove transmission pan.

Agreed. The only tranny I have ever had crap out was the only one that I changed the fluid and filter in.
