thank you for the info. i did save the plates, took pics of the car and mileage and plan on framing them. I wonder if i'd still be eligible?

She had 315,993 miles on it. #RIP
curious as to what happened to the car that it was done for?


You certainly got your moneys worth out of it!

Here's the link, just click on the one for Chrysler:

https://blog.fcanorthamerica.com/201...h-milers-club/

I would do it quickly before the VIN records update in their system, but you should still qualify as they can see the ownership records.

Leave Customer Assistance checked in the first box. Then fill out all the other info, in the "WHAT CAN WE HELP YOU WITH" box, for Subject: Join High Miler Club, Description: that you would like to join the club and receive your free 300,000 mile frame.

it was a myriad of things. it was losing power, not running smoothly (mechanic thought it was an EGR? Valve, but it wasn't) no codes were showing. The last amt of money we dropped into it failed to figure it out. As we pulled it up to the dealership (limped is more likely) it just wouldn't go anymore.

I just bought a 2001 Limited Edition, one owner with only 64,000 miles. The poor thing spent most of it's life baking in the Florida sunshine, so the clearcoat looks pretty bad. The dash is cracked from the heat, but other than that, the interior is immaculate! I wonder if anyone here can tell me if I should change the timing belt based on miles or age, as the heat here can be pretty brutal. Any words of advice or the voice of experience? Thanks

Age & heat is a huge factor---we did mine last year at 50k mile because of age---mine is an '03. Yours is 16 model years old--change it--you won't regret it. MJB (manual actually has age as well as miles in it)
