"Our 2005 Chrysler TC Limited is still cruising like a dream 14 years and 208k miles later (2nd owner).
We've followed the maintenance schedule religiously and did the expected major maintenance along the way. This super mom machine has travelled in Cascade Mtn Blizzards, 115 degree desert off-road and survived countless long hauls packed to the nines with coolers, bikes, and pulling a variety of trailers. Driving up long steep mountain passes and passing the newer SUVs gives me great pleasure. In City and at the sporting events is a win too. I can jump in the front of a Freeway backup line or take a snooze in the reclining 2nd row leather seats while waiting at Costco.
The power lift gate and doors always work and none of the labels on the dash systems wire out.
The front left leather driver seat is showing the cracks now, but I've seen much worse at 60k on a Mercedes.
The next owner of this van will possibly acquire the best vehicle they've ever owned.
How? Because we followed the maintenance schedule and fixed every small to medium need along the way."
