Hi, noob here, just bought last week a used 2008 Town and Country. High miles 257,725 (I knew this ahead of time) but the previous owner took excellent care of it, runs like it's new.

Crossed 200000 miles on our 2008 3.8. yesterday. I replaced the cylinder heads of the 3.8 with new ones (lucky to find 0mile real mopar ones) just last week because the valves were worn by driving on lpg. Anyone know if this high milers club with the licence plate holders still exists and if they also have european size plate holders?

I believe that program not longer exist. Haven't seen any official documentation but a couple of members here posted something about it.

Anyways, 200k is not much of accomplishment, especially if you bought your vehicle used and with much of that mileage already. I would prefer to be on the zero mile club.

If you really like that license plate holder, you can buy one used on ebay or craigslist.

2008 T&C 3.3L. Just passed 180,000 miles. Not a big deal for most cars. However, this van is drinking oil more and more. The engine has had regular oil and filter changes, always synthetic oil. Regardless, the engine is worn. I'll be retiring it this year I think. I expected the yoyo shifting 4 speed to die first but it didn't. Rust is appearing in random places, fix it here and it breaks out over there, the low overall quality is getting tiresome.

I'm only at 230,000 kms (not miles) on my '08 T&C 4.0 but I hope to make it much further than that like some of you have. To make it to 200k miles (with the original engine) is not a big deal on a Honda or Toyota but on an older Chrysler/Dodge I think is impressive.

2014 T&C Limited has 24,000.
I have a 2014 30th anniversary TC and traveled across Canada towing a travel trailer (Apex 191RBS) with as well as several states and running strong with 276,000 KM. It tows like a dream, driving for about 8 to 10 hours before stopping for the night. Many times we even forget the trailer is at the back. I can tell you that you have a great vehicle. Hope this can help anyone who is trying to decide.

QCP,

I do a lot of trailering, our vans are pretty good at it, but no way so good that you may forget you are pulling such a heavy trailer, let's not confuse people new to trailers.

You don't have to copy your post to every person, just one for everyone should be enough.

Thank you Levy for the coaching. Much appreciated!
However, I have been towing with this van for 5 years. The first camper- Apex 2008 had a dry weight of 2900lbs and the new 2018 one has a dry weight of 3468 lbs. I am equipped with an equalizer 6000 WDH. And a curt 600 hitch receiver, the setup is perfectly level and the trailer has an aerodynamic shape. I climbed mountains in Canada's east coast and in the west to the Canadian Rockies, Alberta Canada. Facts .... I was only sharing my experiences with the Chrysler town and country van. Now as you said that, please just ignore what I said in the last post.
Sincerely.
QCP

2015 T&C with 118,000 miles. No serious issues. Just replaced the ribbon cable in the overhead screen last night and the rear A/C has started struggling. Hopefully another easy fix.
