Chrysler has been the weak sister of the so called American Big Three auto makers for so long that it is not funny. In 2001 my son and his wife bought a new Chrysler Sebering and a Hyundai Elantra. Within two years the Chrysler had had several problems to include a very expensive replacement of a computer that controlled the auto transmission and guess what, yes, that was the one computer that was not under warranty. Well, as of today the Chrysler is somewhere in a buy here pay here lot or a junk yard and the Elantra is still going strong at 165K miles. Chrysler has been is still and will always be a very bad purchase. If you do not believe me, ask any mechanic or parts person.

Actually, with the lack of quality control at Crisis Motors you would be forced to purchase two or three new Crisis Motor Company cars before a Hyundai or a Toyota wore out.

I do not have to speak to some bogus employee at some unknown dealership to tell you that Crisis Motor cars are crap. My son boght a new one in 2001 and by 2003 it was developing major problems. We still have the Hyundai he and his wife purchased during that time, with the exception of replacing one timing belt it has given over 150K trouble free miles.

The problem is the bean counters and other non-car people in management.

They don't give a damn about the product, but they sure want you to buy it.

I wouldn't mind a federally mandated new passenger vehicle warranty that covered every component other than user-replaceable things (brake pads, fluids, tires, etc). Might give them a kick in the right direction.

You may want to re-check their quality. Chrysler's cars are flying off the shelves for years now. That's happening for a reason. What do you have against them? Have you had any exposure to their products in the last few years? Really worth a look.

Right now Chrysler doesn't have anything I want, except maybe the Ram trucks, but, the diesel in the Ram is supposed to be better than those in GM or Ford pickups, but I am not in the market for a car now. If Chrysler brings over a diesel in their small cars, I'd certainly be interested.
