This just may be the reason it's so very, very important to have two vehicles when both husband and wife are working and no kids, family or friends to help out: We have two. A 2005 Dodge Durango SLT, that we bought used in 2005, and a 1997 Dodge Ram 1500, that we bought used in 2003. Before buying the Ram, we had a Toyota 4-Runner and that was our only vehicle. If I needed it for an interview, doctors appointment or whatever, I'd have to take her to work and go and get her after work. That was sort of a hassle, especially in the winter months in Colorado. So, that's why we ended up buying the Ram. Good thing, I wound up getting a job in downtown Denver which was 18 miles from the apartment we had at the time. So, I'd drive the Ram to work and she'd drive the 4-Runner. Today, our main vehicle for driving is the Durango, but if that is in the shop for repair, my wife takes the Ram 1500 to work. If she has the Durango at work, I will use the Ram 1500 if I need to go somewhere. Now, the problem with having two vehicles is the repair expense and insurance. Just recently we've had get new tires for the Ram and a complete brake job (rotors, pads, calipers and shoes, plus a master cylinder). Then, a new battery and a new starter. Thing is, if we didn't have the Ram 1500, and the Durango would need work at a shop for something, how would my wife get to work and home. Renting a car is fairly expensive. So, we've had to "bite the dust" and put out some bucks (more than we really wanted to), for the Ram 1500 repairs. However, we do plan on selling the Ram next year.
