I've got a 2011 SE I purchased new in Sept. of 2011, and I just hit 37K miles the other day on it.
So far, no issues with the 3.6 engine and drivetrain, and I have been driving it like I stole it right from the day bought it. It has seen many hours in the worse stop & go traffic Dallas has to offer, including I-635 on a Friday afternoon and the Dallas North Tollway on any morning or afternoon.
As an aside, I would just like to go on the record with this: I hate 635 with a passion!!
I hate it for the hell I have had to endure in traffic jams on it throughout the years. If I-635 was a person, I would beat him w/ a 2x4 until he was dead...and then urinate on his dead body and laugh while doing it.
But I digest...
Anyway, I make sure to keep the oil, all filters, etc. changed on or before factory recommended intervals. So I would say that there is no need to worry about these cars' reliability and longevity, even with a more spirited driving approach, when regular maintenance is done within the recommended mileage or date ranges.
