"I bought mine used, had the common Crankshaft Sensor failure, (no Start condition). Replaced the sensor for $72, now it purrs like a kitten. At 161,000 miles, drives smooth, with plenty of power for a 2.5L V6, (I would love for it to have a Turbo, for that upper-end power). Overall, I have No complaints.
TIPS: Keep the leather conditioned , perform regular maintenance, keep the Oil and Filters changed every 3500 miles, Belts and Hoses every 4 years, regardless of condition.
If you buy it with high miles (over 100K), do not used fully synthetic oil as it will find every dry gasket and start to leak, use Natural Oil (I use Castrol GTX) 10w-30 winter and 20w-50 in the summer). If bought new, use recommended Weight, Mobile 1 or equivalent, Synthetic Oil from the start.
Chrysler trannys are not the best but are OK. Help it live longer by changing Tranny filter and fluids every 30,000 miles. Never ignore that little Check Engine Light if it comes on, have it inspected soon. There's a reason for that light.
And MOST importantly, never run anything less than 91 Octane fuel, stay away from the cheap gas with ethanol and this car should last many more years to come. With average fuel prices, 91 Octane runs .20 more per gallon. 10 gallons is only $2.00 more for better fuel, better mileage, better performance and a cleaner system.
