    I have no opinnion, but I know this. Cerebus (my soon to be new overlords) outsourced a lot of GMACs operations. I'm also going to miss a lot of my homies from mercedes...I was at a mercedes dealership friday, nice folks...

    Chryslers product really turned around under the guidance of Mercedes but i'm sure it will turn back to crap again in the near future...German Engineering actually had Chrysler making nice cars...oh well.

    a part of the agreement actually calls for continued product innovation sharing...we'll be linked for a while...sharing platforms for sure...

    egh, ford doesn't make anything I like that much new...maybe the f150, i like rangers too, i've had 2 of those...and i'd take a s197 stang for a new car...other than that they don't really make anything I like...people have been predicting Chrysler's demise for decades and it's never happened...not that it can't it just hasn't when everyone says its done for it always comes back...

    Haha thats not gonna happen, if anything they would go Chevy or Toyota since Ford only has 2 decent vehicles...The Mustang and The F-Series...Ford has its head stuck in its ass and the rest of there cars are just BLAH...They ditched the Taurus which was the #1 selling car for like 15 years and replaced it with a box but are gonna rename that box The Taurus because they are just a poorly run company grasping at straws.

    We have an 05 V6 Malibu that my G/F drives to work in the City (Philadelphia) I bought it used with 7,000 miles on it for $12k out the door and it will beat a stock 96-98GT :rollinglaugh: I'ved owned it for almost 2 years now and its run perfect...i am totally surprised plus it gets 27 city and 33 highway MPG. Not something i would pay 24k new for, but for what i paid and what we use it for its not bad at all.

    yeah they have a 4 banger version...i drove one to see how it was because it gets like 5mpg more but it didn't have the needed get up and go the 200hp V6 had.
