97' GC Sport 3.3 221,000. Just did valve cover gaskets plugs,wires. 50/50 trans service running atf+4. Engine oil 10w 30 mobile 1 syn. No leaks, no bangs, no clucks. so far.:thumb:
No clunks? That's no fair! I have less than half the mileage and my suspension is shot to all he ll. Although Chicago is known to be pot hole central lol.

99' TC Limited. 287k on original non-rebuilt eng and transmission. Parents bought it new in 98'. Been sitting for 7 months and figured I would drive it for awhile. Dad was relentless on maintenance, that along with it having the fact tow pkg most likely helped keep it going. I would like to see 300k out of the original tranny. Engine runs great but does use about a quart every 3-4k miles. Still gets low 20's mpg which is why I am driving it because my other truck doesn't.

Has some minor rust and paint fade but all in all still looks good for it's age and miles.

99 Plymouth Voyager with 135,600 miles - hoping to put a few more on it before it needs MAJOR work. I'm at least the third owner and I'm not sure it hasn't had anything done previously, but I'm assuming no rebuild of engine or tranny.

1999 Grand Caravan Sport 296,000

Bought it new in 2000. No major repairs until now. Main bearing is shot. Wish I could have gotten another 4000 out of it.

Well, I was really hoping to get to push the bottom button on this Poll, and was on target to do it around New Years (currently at 269K). Now I'm considering throwing in the towel, as I've posted in another thread ("Torque converter error code"). So close, yet so far.

183,000 - Vehicle was obtained from an auction at 90,000 miles. Have replaced water pump, fan relay, headlights, and resealed intake, pan, and valve covers. EGR valve replaced, hatch struts, silicone on rear door to prevent rain indoors. Trans rebuild at 180,000.

Currently shopping for clean green hood, hatch, and passenger sliding door.

Ok, I'm gonna feel like a newb posting this:

2002 Grand Caravan Sport - 37,700ish miles.

I bought it two months ago with 33,867 on the clock. It was a trade in at a Cadillac dealership. Found it on Autotrader.

So far I've put new brakes on it, replaced the steering reservoir, and added the elbow to the ac drain.

97 Grand Caravan ES 3.8, bought it in January '07 with 56,789 on it, currently at 88,000. Have put on a new set of tires, front brake pads, and driver's window regulator so far. Have a 30,000 GVW transmission cooler on it and a temp gauge to keep an eye on it. Have pulled a u-haul loaded to just under 2000 lbs a couple of times and it handles it well. Have my own trailer now that is lower and pulls easier. Hoping to get 150k out of it without any major repairs.

Current issue is the rear drums are rusted to the hubs so I don't know the condition of the rear brakes - but it will chirp the tires in the rear when activating ABS, so they must be OK yet - I have all the parts to repair, just have to find the time!
