Awhile back, my Durango starting spitting gas out when I would fill it up. Even if I would run it slow to the end, it would still spill out. Before I take something in for repairs, I always do a little internet pricing and found that some 2005 Durangos were recalled for this very same problem. I called Dodge the next day and learned that although some of the Durangos were recalled, not mine. I did appeal to their service department but to no avail. The repair out of my pocket was quite costly and the cheap fix was just shutting the pump off before it was full.
Recently I got a letter from Dodge that my Durango had a recall for this problem. Well, dah!
When I shopped for my Ram, I was price shopping, not color shopping. I knew what I wanted (Dodge). I knew what I didn’t want (diesel). I needed 4WD, a crew cab and a long box. And air conditioning, of course. As much as I love gadgets, I don’t need them when I drive. When I found what I was looking for, it just happened to be what they called “rustic brown”. I called it UPS brown. Definitely not the color I would have chosen, but having everything else I needed, I could live with it.

When I picked up the Durango today after the necessary recall repairs, I noticed a beautiful Ram truck in the colors I would have preferred. Cream with gold trim. Just beautiful! It was brand-spanking new with the sticker still on the window. I pulled over and checked out the price. $63,295! OMG!
Let me tell you, there is not a thing wrong with UPS brown!
