To follow up on my previous posts, I should mention that my family has has several Mopar vehicles that have been absolutely unstoppable. The first was a 1993 Plymouth Voyager with the 3.0 Mitsu motor and the 3-speed auto. That van was absolutely rock solid. The only issues it had was a cracked distributor cap which allowed moisture in causing a stalling condition, and a catastrophic failure of the trans at ~165k miles. Not friction related, if I remember correctly one of the planetary drums exploded without warning. We sold that van to a family friend who swapped in a 5-speed manual out of a V6 Sundance and drove the snot out of it.
That van was replaced by a '97 T&C, loaded. The biggest failure it had was the starter dying at the post office. Other than that, all it ever needed was the cooling fan module (which all Mopar's of that generation suffered from). Never an issue with the 41TE, nor any other aspect of the vehicle.
Personally, I've had few Mopar's. They were just never on my radar. I did have the pleasure of owning a 1st gen LHS, which was a heck of a ride. The 3.5 is bullet proof, and the fit and finish were top notch. I truly enjoyed that vehicle.
My two latest examples are both WJ Grand Cherokees. The first being a 2002 4.0 SelecTrac that had north of 260k miles with nary an issue, other than the classic piston slap when cold. It didn't even burn oil. Was it perfect? Not by a long shot. But it was a very very solid truck. My current WJ, a '00 Limited with the 4.7 and 236k is actually even better. Literally everything works, from the heated seats to the AC to the (admittedly trouble prone) automatic climate control. It also uses almost no oil, shifts crisp and firm, and has nary a squeak or rattle over rough pavement. The NV247 transfer case works flawlessly, as do both Vari-Loc axles. The Infinity stereo sounds better than many modern "branded" stereos, even with 20 year old stock speakers. There isn't even wear on the leather, save for the steering wheel which is to be expected. All it's needed to date was a P/S hose, front brakes, and a rear wiper arm.
