yea thats right 146k.... I've looked at several under a 100k and to be honest this was by far in the best shape both mechanically and body.. (wish i could post pics).. Runs like a dream on highway (very surprised at how quiet it is)... Also its shifts silky smooth...

For my V8 and HEMI fans out there; i agree that it doesnt have the biggest balls in the room but it should do the job just fine... I don't off road.. Live in NYC... just need to be able to make it though some rough snow....

Paid a bit more than i should have for it $6,500 but given the condition I thought it was justifiable...


Thanks again,
AY
I wanted to chime in, and defend the seemingly low ranked 3.7. It sounded like most of the bases had been covered so no need for me to beat a dead horse. I've had my 3.7 Laredo for around a year now. The average gas mileage stays on, or around 17.5. I do mostly local roads, and five-10 minutes on highway occasionally. I only drove a few V8's before, and watching the gas needle move in twenty minutes of test driving was just like the Tahoe I got rid of. I do most of my own work, and when I looked under the hood. I was very happy to see most things looked relatively easy to work on. I did a lot of reading, and read many posts of people fixing the v8's, and not to many v6 posts since I do my own maintenance this speaks to me very much. I also seemed to feel the weight of the motor in the v8's that felt like they understeered maybe I wasn't used to them? Anyway like you said I don't do much rock crawling, or towing so I don't need what I really didn't want anyway.
It took me some more months to find one as clean as I wanted. It looks like you found a black one as clean as my Stone white one-Congratulations.
