My Sebring was by far the worst automobile I've ever owned, and that's saying a lot because I only paid 1/3 of KBB for it.

It's amazing how the highest paid auto workers in the world (US) make the worst vehicles.

Had two jeeps back in the 1970s and they were fine. Had a Chrysler Durango back in the late 1990s and it was a piece of crap. Had to get rid of it and buy a Ford.

American auto workers also make 2 of the BEST cars in the world.... Honda and Toyota....
The difference is NOT the workers.
It's the Union

My problem, if I spend my money on a domestic car (ford/gm/chrysler), union workers get paid, union dues are mandatory from those workers, millions in dues goes to fund democrats and liberal causes, I don't want to contribute to politicians let alone liberal causes, therefore, I don't buy domestic cars unless they are built in non union shops.

Toledo and Detroit are both in the same sad shape-victims of BIG BRAIN DEAD LABOR. There is no difference.

I own Freightliner, International, Ford, Chevy, and Chrysler vehicles. I own stock in non of these companies. I buy vehicles for a purpose and many things come to play. If you buy just by brand you are making a mistake. They all make good and bad vehicles. Ever here of Vega or Corvair? How about Pinto or Edsel. How about Dodge cummins pick-up. You will usually feel more comfortable in what you learned to drive and that may be all you care about.

I do not understand why any city would want to claim an association with Jeep or any other Chrysler product. They are all junk. Chrysler has been manufacturing vehicles with the worst reliability records for over 25 years.
Back in 1974, prior to Jeep becoming part of Chrysler, I bought a new Jeep CJ5. Every 1000 miles I could expect a major mechanical breakdown. It was the worst vehicle I ever owned. Reading the current recommendations from Consumer Reports shows that not much has changed since then.
My 5 mini vans have been great with low maintenance. I love my Dodge Ram which is built to handle any weather or job.

I don't get why people think there is only one problem with Big Automotive?

Yes Labor is an issue, but management made their mistakes as well. You could certainly argue that Big Auto became bloated, inefficient and top heavy and created/backed vehicles that people didn't want to buy.

All American auto makers play loose with the "made-in-america" phrase....
The greater percentage of "American" cars are actually assembled in Mexico, Canada, Brazil....
The cars mostly made & assembled in America are Toyota & Honda.......Including their parts plants....
I am sad to report that the majority of Jeep products are not made in the good old USA like first thought, I found out my 09 Librty sprt was made elsewhere, also the majority of your Jeep parts are not from the USA, you think that is why these Jeep products are a piece of CRAP, thank goodness I got rid of mine.

people who get paid low wages put out low quality products, doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that one out, people with a descent wage take pride in their workmanship, I have worked in 1 nonunion shop and watched all the higherups and the kiss asses get ahead,in fact that is what the kiss asses where giving the higherups, HEAD, wake up, people cannot make it on low wages, they are all on food stamps, if you do not want to contribute to the cause you may want to move out of the country.

I just traded off my 1997 Grand Cherokee and hated to see it go. It only had 180K on it.

Jeep was bought by a few corps over the years. Renault had owned the brand for a while as well back in the early 80s.
Actually, my last 3 cars were Chryslers. I had a Cirrus that lasted well over 200K miles and my current Sebring is excellent. Have had no major problems and all Chryslers lasted despite the fact I am a road warrior. I do not buy a new car until the current one is dead--and I mean dead. I expect the Sebring, 4 years old and 80K miles on it to last another 3-4 years.
chrysler luck must be on your side or you are an employee of the Corp, I have owned only one Chryler product and it cost an arm & a leg to keep up, turned out to be so bad that I made a report to the National Lemmon Law Org, they helped me get a refund on the money that was poured into this whatever it was, I am happy to report that the lemmon has been
melted down, I will never buy another Chrysler product.
