    is my rental here in edmonton.... I must say I kinda like driving it :oops: (I'm not paying to fill the tank :lol:) It's big, you feel like your the king of the road, it has a 6 disc in dash infinity mp3 sound system, it's loaded minus the hemi.

    I can see why people buy SUV's .. if you have the cash to fuel them, they aren't all that bad to roll in!

    I don't think it looks too bad at all (aside from the rear tails). It's also not mean to be a handling vehicle. It will handle fine in the snow in 4x4 and thats all that matters. As for quality, well it's american so that goes without saying... (leather or pleather? :lol:) it's definetly liveable though as far as as SUV goes.

    SUV's are now a status symbol, c'mon, you think they are designed with off roading in mind? There is only one vehicle that as of recently you could buy that would handle true 4x4 duty straight from the factory, but I believe they stopped making it.

    Does the Durango have the 5.7L? :wink:

    What kind of moron would buy a 2005 4x4 vehicle with high ground clearance rather than a more efficent and better handling AWD CAR alternative if they weren't going to take it off road?!

    Oh, the average moron.

    A moron that likes to sit up higher in the air. Some people just like SUV's, even if they are only going to use it for everyday city Driving. I can see why people like them, I love the feel of a truck/SUV to cruise around in, sitting higher up in the Air. I wouldn't own one as my everyday vehicle since I like a nice handling car, however I can understand why some do like them over a car.

    "sitting up higher in the air" and "seeing around traffic" are completely selfish reasons to own an SUV. They are taking up more space, they do more damage to other cars and pedestrians when involved in accidents, they cause insurance rates for smaller cars to go higher, they block EVERYONE ELSE'S VIEW when they 'sit up higher' like tools.. we're not talking about a king's fucking throne here, people should be more socially responsible and think about more than themselves. Not to mention they destroy the environment because they guzzle gas (my parents have two, they average 12mpg between them).

    The whole "I like a commanding view of traffic" argument is bunk and bullshit because all they're doing is spoiling everone else's view.

    Or just a truck for that matter. I rented a F-350 Super Duty, crew cab, long box for my move last month.... It was soo much fun to drive! Massive, but fun to drive. Biggest vehicle I've ever driven, actually.

    :cry: So don't buy one, problem solved. Haven't you learned by now that people buy things that they like that suits their wants and needs, regardless if everyone else around them disliked it. It's the way things work in todays society.

    I'm not buying one, and I'm also not crying about anything. Nice insinuation, though.

    Point is... other people are buying them and it is affecting me. I can't see around traffic, MY insurance rates are higher because of them.. and why? So they can feel safer in a vehicle that is actually less safe than the one I drive? It's purely selfish and idiotic... social responsibility is everyone's responsibility, not just some of ours.

    I know how things work, which isn't how they should... so I speak out against them, which is what I'm doing right now. Learn the difference between that and your supposed accusations of crybabyism, which isn't what I do. :)

    Oh and btw, it affects YOU and YOUR car also.. you should care, and if you don't... you're doing yourself a disservice.

    No need to prove your point to me. Did you forget the fact that I have 1'000'000 killowatt right hand drive headlamps in my car? I care nothing about other motorists, as long as i'm enjoying my personal driving experience. :)
