We had a poll for this way back in Oct 2012. And I started another poll a year ago. It's time for an updated poll.

Our cars continue to age and we have many new members. So it's time for an update to see the breakdown of the number of miles on our cars. EVEN IF YOU RESPONDED TO LAST POLL, PLEASE RESPOND TO THIS LATEST POLL.

NOTE: IF YOU OWN MORE THAN ONE LH VEHICLE you may enter up to 4 vehicles in the poll Please round your mileage up or down to the nearest miles listed. Remember to convert kilometers to miles. This poll will run for 3 months.

If your car has over 300k miles, state your exact mileage as well as select the closest mileage in the poll options.

Cool poll. I am seeing my best car in the top 16% high milers! running as good as the other with 100K miles. A well maintained M can do 300K miles no sweat. My experience about repairs on these, beyond the regular interval maintenances, and when you are diligent doing it are:
1: Oil pan gasket will fail (leak)
2. Canister above the gas tank will fail
3. Rear struts will be a bear to replace at 150K miles
4. Engine cover gasket will need replacements
5. Original gearbox solenoid go bad.
6. Radiator leaks (too many rockchips from the road get the best of it)
7. Steering pump fuild leak at hoses (hoses need replacments)

I dont count the small wear stuff typical on any cars

For me the items above have failed around 140k - 175K miles. Based on 5 Ms I have maintained.
The core engines for me have been bulletproof.

Something around 155k miles on mine (247k km). That list seems scary, Patrick :P I'm going to have to do a front-end rebuild sometime, I guess. Start with radiators, end with tranny solenoids, replacing gaskets and other items on the way.

Over 180k ...original tranny on my 01 lhs (did have to replace tcm though.....weird...but easy and cheap...)
About 155k on the 02 special (engine that went in about 180k)
00 Base .....135k ...

My 1999 Chrysler 300M as of today, 18 april 2017 has 291, 661 miles on it, and still running strong! I can easily do 90-100 MPH on the right highway. I think it will easily hit the 300K miles this December since it is my daily driver. Gotta love that car!

143K mi. 99 base M. I actually gave up a 2005 Magnum RT to get this car. The Magnum was fun, don't get me wrong, but for some reason I just couldn't get comfortable with it.

I dont likw it either.....seats not as comfortable, outside look.....meahhhh...., hp depending on model less ...(unless you went rt v8 model), option less than the M even for a 2005.....so yeah.......
You made the better choice (other than cargo though.....the hatch back option is helpfull sometimes) ...off topic ...i know sorry...
