We bought this car used in 2010 with 69,000. It was great for a minute and then...hoses, water pump, tensioners, a lot of tensioners, drive chain, sensor for some timing issue, thermostat, fuel pump, a bolt that sheared off the oil pan. Check engine light was on, with the coded for gas cap. No matter how many gas caps (5). It leaked oil from different places. Get one seal replaced, it would leak from somewhere else. Towed at least 6 times. Last time it was 100 degrees, it started missing, smoking. It ended up being the battery, but I was way too paranoid to drive this car any more. Too much money and stress. Not sure I ever want to own another Chrysler. I traded it in and I am sorry for the next person that owns it. These issues started at approximately 75,000. Traded in at 132,000.
