Well, I actually had to do it...I had to admit that my husband was right. He told me about a year ago, not long after we moved into our house that I needed a 4-wheel drive vehicle. I absolutely love my honda odyssey, and hate to give it up, but our road is really taking its toll on the suspension system, and I can't go anywhere when it snows, because they don't run salt trucks (and a lot of times not even a plow) on our road. We do have a 2000 Dodge Durango, but since it only gets 12 miles to the gallon, I really can't take it anywhere either. Now, I'm starting to look for a good SUV. I need one with 3rd row seating since I have 4 kids, and I need one that has at least a little room in the back. It doesn't need to get great gas milage, but it does definately need to be better than 12 mpg. If you have one or know someone that has a good one, I'm up for suggestions. Please if possible, list the year, because I know some models didn't start adding the third row seat until a certain year.
