Yet another "what car to buy" thread...

So here's the parameters: three row seating but no minivans. Would prefer 4WD/AWD and something that could tow at least a small trailer. Must be able to find a rust-free example for under $15,000, preferably closer to $10,000. Obviously better gas mileage is...well, better.

We love our Durango, but it was just a $5k beater when we bought it. Now that the AC is TU, the power steering leaks like a sieve, the tires are bald, and the body is slowly rotting away, the heater coil springing a leak puts it squarely into the "more trouble than it's worth" category for me. Oh yeah, by the way, anyone in the market for a Durango?

There's a fairly high-mile '09 Chevy Traverse nearby at the top of the price range. The Dodge Journey looks like it might fit the bill, but I don't know if they've been out long enough to have much used inventory. Anyone have experience with either of those? Any other suggestions?
