2002 Dodge Durango SLT Plus 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
I got this as my first car about 2 months ago... I LOVE IT. I got a WELL MAINTAINED one, which explains why it hasn't fallen apart. I live in the hills, yet still get decent gas mileage. It drives like a dream. My friends love it. My dad loves it. Even my mom who hates suv's loves it. I have been camping, off roading, and have taken a road trip already. It's perfect for all of these things.
