im not sure how long they would last but with any car, as long as its taken care of and maintained properly it should last you for a long time. the most miles i have seen on a 300c were around the 140k so for sure they will last you past the 100k mile mark.
as for known issues and problems...the main one with these cars are usually the tie rods around 60k miles and usually warped rotors so be aware of that but other than that they are great cars with very few problems but again it all depends on the condition its in and how well you take care of it too.
I have a hemi in my pickup that is over 100,000. It has been a workhorse. Used on construction and towing my boats and racetrailer up and down the coast(trailer-not the boats).
I have yet to have a problem and she still runs very strong. I can easily see 200,000
It's so sad to see SRT8's sitting in garages. They are made to be driven, and are unlikely to be collectibles for many years yet, if ever.......
I got what some say is a small car lot of vehicles (trail only TJ, F150 Screw, Shelby Cobra (replica), and a VW TDI - pawned off my 87 GT mint condition conv to the kid - just to make room!) Each one gets a little of my attention depending on what day it is, and where I am going. Hardest part is keeping up with preventive maint - I do it all myself. Don't trust anybody - just to many poor experiences when dealing with others....... IMHO, nobody will care more about your stuff than you do.
My Steel 8 is always a treat to drive, and only I drive it! Would not let one of the other clan mates have the keys for nothing......... so its mileage stays low. If I ever got rid of my lot, the Steel 8 would be one of the last to go .
