I thought having a final drive rebuild sounded expensive until I visited my local Dodge dealer yesterday. My Dakota pickup stopped blowing hot air and it needs a new "air blend door" up under the dash. It's a small plastic door that controls how much outside air comes into the HVAC system when it's running. $2000.00. WHAT?????? Yes, but that's almost entirely labor to remove and reinstall the dash, etc. I have never been a big believer in service contracts but when I bought this truck new I took one. Wow. $100.00 deductible and I'm home free. It's gonna be a good Christmas after all.
