Since the 3rd and 4th generations have a thread about mileage, and I just hit a milestone on my 2009, I decided to start this thread for 5th generation owners.

I hope the "High Milers Club" still exist, I want to get the 200,000 mile license plate frame.

206,767 on my 2008 Grand Caravan SXT. We’ve kept the maintenance up on it it’s been a very good dependable Toddler Taxi!

Now I need to unload the old 2005 SXT. May keep it as a beach and work van for hauling lumber from Home Depot for my wood working business.

2009 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.3 L with 268806 miles C/V trim, but having random limp mode issues for 5 years. No one can figure out the cause. Thunderbay Dodge could not find the issue, and Criswell Chrysler Dodge as well. Factors that seem to cause the limp mode: Ambient air above 70 degrees F. and engine temp is normal, from a stop position to a normal acceleration the van goes into limp mode with 3 lights on the dash: Check engine, Volt light, and Traction control light. If the outside air is below 70 degrees F., it Never goes into limp mode. Also, there are NO codes found EVER... Replaced: entire throttle body and sensor, acceleration position sensor(gas peddle), charcoal canister, camshaft position sensor, crankshaft sensor, PCM $600, TCM $200, spark plugs, plug wires, PCV valve, EGR valve, transmission input sensor, transmission output sensor, wire harnessed for camshaft position sensor, and no the transmission is not low on fluid. It runs perfect until it gets 70 degrees or higher outside. In addition all sensors have been relearned. So, anyone have an issue like this?

Follow the wires from transmission to the engine. There is a metal bracket that holds the wires in place that will cause the wires to skin and under some conditions like ac being worked it will short causing limp mode. Have seen it cause codes and not cause codes. It will get worse.

Just got back from a big road trip in our 2015 T&C. Hit 150,000 miles on the way up. I'm at 153,000 miles today. Have been looking at selling it and getting a new Pacifica but it did so well that I may just keep it.

It appears these 5th Generation vans hold their alignments.
I single out 5th Gen. only because it's what my friend bought. OK bearings and axles too.
