Expensive to repair

Vehicle: 1998 Dodge Dakota 2dr Extended Cab SB

A joy to drive, but a nightmare on repair costs. Dodge doesn't make it easy to repair or replace a small piece or a small part, you have to replace the entire part. One example is on the Upper Swing Arm - instead of just replacing the bearing when it goes bad, you have to replace the whole Upper Swing Arm at around $300.
