    as long as they keep sharing Tech and Chasis's Chrysler should be ok...the pre-Mercedes cars of the late 90's were just garbage...

    sucks for the sales guys though...one of my best selling points was this car is a Mercedes at half the price etc and then i'd show them what platforms and drivetranes were shared and close the deal.

    I agree on that! I would have sold so many more Magnums if the avg Hemi equipped model was going for damn near 30k...all the brotha's from Philly wanted them so they could rim them up etc but they couldn't get approved for the $600 a month loans :( i did sell a ton of neons to them though :)

    Matt, you're to smart to use the incorrect form of you're
    and yes, I almost cried when I found out that jackass was taking over ... lasorda would do just fine...we've got to get out from under the thumb of the UAW. every jackass on the line makes as much as I do + ot, + when they're laid off they're paid 95% sub pay to sit and wait... they are parasites

    I agree that the UAW is a huge problem for the auto industry. They would rather put the big 3 out of buisiness than give up the goodies.
