Okay, I'll bite. My 2005 Caravan with the 2.4 liter engine has 265,877 miles on it and it still gets 8,000miles to a quart (I use synthetic oil). My last Caravan, a 1998, had 286,000 miles on it when I sold it. I was living in Texas then and I'd just blown the transaxle plus the AC was broken, other than that the engine ran great. I sold it to a Mexican fellow who was going to tow it south to Mexico, throw in a used transaxle and resell it. As for the AC, he told me he wasn't worried about no stinkin' AC. BTW, he gave me $700 for it. I'd only paid $2,500 for it when I bought it 5 years and 136,000 miles earlier.

What a good deal... I gave mine to a junkyard for $350 and it was working perfectly, including the Climate Control (AC) and also less mileage :(
