The RPM is a display indicator of vehicle performance in relation to fast moving capabilities.
A vehicle that requires so much RPM has functions explanable

1. multi purpose vehicles like sports utility require more RPM considering the functionality in relation to performance. for example, a sports utility vehicle requiring tow capabilities would be greatly reduced without high RPM considering that builting an engine and structure so rigid would be disproportionate with RPM. The sports utility vehicle for example has multi purposes requiring features the contribute towards achiev ing each additional functionity. The RPM provides the appropaie measure of propertionality in the functionality and especially for an operational guideline.

2. 60 RPM has been the standard for several vehicles of similar capacity and would be drastic measure to increase without any additional vehicle upgrades to complement the entire functionity of vehicle.

2005 Dodge Stratus jerks at 2500 rpm and wont drive over 60mph. if you try to go over 60' it jerks.

You have an issue with fuel delivery, once the car gets to 60mph the car will not get the required amount of fuel to go faster.
Check the fuel pump and the fuel injector rail pressure, you might need a new fuel pressure regulator.

2001 caddilac deville dhs shakes when it goes over 60mph and makes thumping noise from rear passanger side when i brake

Check the U-joints this will give you a thumping sound by running
out of round. Banging on bottom of car.
The noise in the rear could be a bad wheel bearing, I had that
happen when the race of the bearing came apart.

I have a 2001 nissan altima and sometimes my car wont go over 60mph would that b gas filter issue or mass air flow sensor

If the gas filter is due, I would replace it as a matter of course. The mass air flow sensor is a possibility...try leaving the mass air flow sensor wire harness unplugged to see if the car runs better. If it does, probably it is bad. However, I would also check the exhaust for a restriction (eg. cat converter could be plugging up), one way to check that is to hook a vacuum gauge to the engine to see if you get normal values. (vacuum should hold steady @ about 20 Hg with engine at 2500-3000 RPM, with no fluttering or drop-off). Also, ensure that all your vacuum hoses are good, and that there are no vacuum leaks (leaks will make a hissing noise).

When im driving in 5th gear the RPM's seem high around 3500 is this normal?

I, also, thought this was high at first. After some research, I found that this car runs in that range at about 75 mph. So, yes. That is normal.

Do you remember by chance speed vs RPM before & after work done? for example : before was 2000 RPM @ 60 MPH. Now 2200 RPM @ 60MPH ? May be coincidence, and transmission not shifting to overdrive or high gear.
