Dinged-Up Chrysler Sputtering Like A Beater

Company must live with dented lineup until Fiat cars arrive

By Robert Channick

How bad a year was it for Chrysler Group LLC in 2009?

At Napleton's Northwestern Chrysler Jeep Dodge in Chicago, they didn't sell a new Chrysler during the entire last two months of the year.

Chrysler will be lucky to stay in business long enough for the Fiat's to be available in the USA.   

The feds more than likely just wasted our tax dollars on keeping this sinking ship afloat another year or two.

They are actually trying to sell a car called The Detonator. Besides the terrorist/bomb association, detonation is a serious fuel system problem that indicates serious engine trouble. They might as well name it the Flat Tire!

As a parts dept. employee at a Chrysler dealer, I can tell you right now that this company is living on borrowed time.
If all the crap up to now wasn't bad enough, now we've got this coming: A MAJOR brake recall on almost all the current models of Dodge, Chrysler and Jeep. It's going to drive the last nail in the struggling auto company's coffin.
