    Lovely Pile Of Metal — Horrible mileage, runs like crap, knocks and pings, squealing idler pulley, warped brakes, terrible stopping power, no giddyup, unusable dipstick tube (oil), it's freaking BARNEY PURPLE, ok, the paint code says dark amnethyst... but it's blurple to me. All of that being said, i love driving this glorious POS.

    Pros: Has a nice sound if you ignore the squealing belt and clack, clack, clack

    Cons: not economical, ugly as sin

    Dodge Durango Slt Mofo — Performances were really good on this truck. It had a V8 Magnum 5.2L. It can go anywhere you want lol. It was really fun to drive although really expensive, especially because of the gas mileage, which is really low on this type of vehicle.

    Pros: Good performance, fun to drive

    Cons: loves sipping gas

    Grab Life By The Horns — Love it! Never lets me down anymore. Had a few issues when i 1st bought it, but we got them worked out over time. It is a huge gas hog, but thats expected with a V8. Doesnt ask for much matinence, can 500 on oil changes Only complaint is the rubber trim on the bottom of the windows rusted from underneath and causes the trim to flap in the wind while driving

    Pros: lots of room

    Cons: gas hog

    Great Suv! — This vehicle is one of the most versatile SUV's I've ever driven. Great acceleration. Awesome Off road capabilities. Have had to change the water pump 2 times since parent's have owned. Fun to race crappy little cavaliers in. MPG is pretty average for a 318 V8. I love driving this car.

    Pros: Fun to drive.

    Cons: Part replacement isn't easy

    Rugged Performance, Good Value — I ordered this vehicle from the factory with the options that would later be grouped as the R/T package, in fact, pretty much every option but the engine block heater, which I probably should have done. It's been to Montana in the winter, and up and down the west coast of the US, often towing a 28 foot travel trailer, with bikes or skis on the roof racks. Handling and traction in dicey road conditions has been superb, even while watching Subarus sliding out of control across my path. There have been occasional repairs, but I think we have gotten our money's worth, owning this vehicle for the last 10 years.

    Owner for 10 years, 0 months

    Miles Driven per Year:8,000

    Pros: 5.9L V8 has more power for same gas mileage as the 5.2L.  With the luggage carrier, you really can seat 7 on a long trip if you need to, in a fair degree of comfort.  CD player with Infinity speakers delivers outstanding sound.  Kids can climb in and out easily with the running boards.  Gas mileage (15-16 range) not significantly worse than the V6 minivan (18-21).

    Cons: If you really want to tow 7000 lbs. over high mountain passes, get a diesel.  This rig can do it, but it does slow down when you're climbing a couple thousand feet at 6% or 7% grades.
