I came from a family that never owned dodges, but my brother-in-law's family is a Chrysler family. He's owned all his caravans til 200k, right now he has a 2007 Hemi durango that only thing he's done is change oil (free w/dealer), tires, and brake pads and he's at 220k, his dad had a road runner that had 420k prestine miles before he was rear ended. While my sisters 2 Oddesy's have only made it to 70k before crapping out. Every comany has its issues, GM just doesn't make a SUVs for a decent price that gives me the fiz. Traverse is a glorified minivan, used TBSS only seats 5, Tahoe is enormous, Ecoboost Flex would be nice but I 'hate Ford'. Really like Grand Cherokee but no more room than our G inside, I thought the Durango would be the best of both worlds hp and family compatible.
What I really would have rather done is buy a $3-5k Land Cruiser beater, but wife wants to only have 2 cars. Our G is more sentimental than just a awesome ride - when I lived in OZ I went to the Auto Show unveil of the VE in Brizy, and still reminds me of my time over there (good memories of my youth) also my wife and I bought it new with the money from our wedding when my Olds Calis engine locked up. So it really would kill me to get rid of it, but it doesn't make since if I can't drive it.
