It was for the wife, but...

2001 Dodge Durango Sport 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)
Bought it for my wife as our family car in lieu of a van. I drive it more than her. I have a Crown Vic for my daily driver but the Durango is much more fun to drive. Love the power and sound. It hauls the 21 foot inboard better than my father's new Chevy truck. I knew gas mileage would stink, but what can you expect from an SUV? We owned a V6 Chevy Blazer which did just slightly better in gas mileage, but it was the worst vehicle I have ever owned, always in the shop. Family members with TrailBlazers and Envoy's love the Durango's looks and powers.
The power, the look, the sound, the options.
The steering control while going over large bumps. The one piece tailgate. Gas mileage of course, but if I were getting 25 MPG, I would still want more.
