Thats the bad news. My 1991 Toyota Celica Gt was taken from my driveway. Not the nicest car in the world 220K, still ran like a top. 30mpg, great little car to get me to work and my kids to school in.

Good news...Now I am the new owner of a 1991 Durango. Needs some minor (i hope) TLC, but the Durango is in great shape with 130,000 miles on her clock.

Your gonna wish you never bought a Durango in less than a month! Great trucks no doubt but the MPG of them and Dakotas are absolutely horrendous!!!!

Currently getting 13mpg in my 3.9L V6 2000 dakota. My lighter '03 dakota gets a slightly better 15mpg but also has nearly 100,000 miles less on it too.

Once I can afford to do it, I'm looking at buying a Toyota Camry '10+.
