2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)
Bought the car in October 2008 with 42K miles when my first kid came. It's the 6cyl 3.7L so it's not the fastest thing on the road but it gets the job done. 13 months later it now has 58K miles on it. Only trips to the dealer have been for oil changes every 3-4K. Gas mileage is not that great 15-17mpg city average, around 22mpg highway average. Lots of room in the trunk to haul things. Interior is pretty simple but rugged which I like because it's easy to maintain.
