Ive seen them have 300k and besides burning oil a bit they all do , they still run. Dealer traced it to valve leakage number 6 cylinder. Dealership thought I shouldn't have to pay for premature failure of known problem.
The timing belt is something you know will have to be done so you can save up for the cost starting a few months in advance and not have it be such a hit on the wallet. If you have a customer who drives a Chrysler product with a 3. It's said that some engineers have changed their online résumés to reflect their focus on the new motor.
