That's just over 100k mi. Impossible to tell without a LOT more info.
Might last another 100k, might fall apart tomorrow. All depends on how it's been maintained and what phase the moon is in...

Someone here recently paid $10k US for an 07 with 92,000 miles. That is about the most I'd pay with the miles you are looking at. I do see a lot of Chrysler mini-vans with a lot of smoke coming out the tail pipe. Those engines probably have 150k+ miles on them though.

I'd avoid it, because 162,000 KM in 3-4 years is a LOT of driving. That's at least double the average mileage put on a vehicle.

The Chrysler 3.8L is a good, if slightly weak, engine, getting 300,000 good KMs out of it isn't unreasonable. But one that's put on 40,000 KM a year has been driven a LOT. Unless it's less than $10,000 CDN, don't bother with it.
