      Why it's on the list: Fuel; Maintenance; Depreciation
      The Dodge Dakota Crew Cab is up next, with a fuel cost to make you cringe. These bigger pickups seem to just guzzle gas down, making you spend more and more at the pump. On top of that, the price to maintain this vehicle is pretty hefty. Before purchasing this, you better make sure it's in decent shape or you're going to be hurting when it starts to fall apart. When that starts happening, trying to sell it for near to what you paid for it is going to be near impossible as the depreciation value is one of the reasons this car will cost you so much in the long run. The cost of all three issues is going to continue to add up for as long as you own it. It's best to get out while you can.

    This article is biased as it does not list all other factors on comparable vehicles. If it wants you to avoid the suburban for purchase, they should  tell you if  a Sequoia or Armada are better. Do they provide all the same benefits at a better value and why? the same goes for the Durango and the explorer as opposed to the 4runner or Landcruiser. There has to be a direct comparison in order to make a value judgment here.
