This from their Consumer Reports:
"I think in Europe they kind of forgive it," said Fisher, who added that the transmission shifts like "someone who's not driving a manual transmission very well."

Fix It Again Tony.

Dodge: the old bankrupt and bought out/soldout Chrysler.

Our local Dodge Dealerships are nothing but throw back used car lots using high pressure and ignorant sales tactics that shouldn't even exist in this day and age. They are also incompetent sales people failing at customer service, courtesy and methods & tactics.

They also fail to sell the product first ie the CAR itself. My last trip into the local Dodge dealer they spent more time begging me, hounding me and/or trying to manipulate me into to their financing plans before we even looked at one car. The salesman avoided the price and features of the actual product:THE CAR and instead brought over his manager(over used and tiresum car selling tactic) to convince me to finance. To top it off I would be turning my old Dodge and if they checked they would've saw I was a decades long Mopar/Chrysler customer.

What a fracken joke the old big three ESPECIALLY Dodge/Chrysler or Fiat has become BUT it shows why they have failed miserably over the DECADES. Darn right their sales are falling short and they are comparing to crappy sale numbers to begin with.

For all their shortcomings, Chrysler made $436 million in the second quarter to save Fiat from going under. They own more than 11% of the market, which is huge for them. If they don't treat people with respect in the showroom, this is the town for them. It's working for them. Chrysler has long been the quality underdog. Those K cars were crappy. The minivans burned transmissions regularly. Somehow, price and warranty got people to buy. I do not understand it or endorse it. I drive GM.

I don't understand the business model that basically puts the dealers, the manufacturers and the customers at odds with each other. It's a game of cut throat where frequently nobody wins. They're using the same business model that sank 2 of the big 3 and female dog slapped Chyrsler several times in one decade. We'll ignore the embarassing humiliation of begging for money in the 80s.

Wrong answer Chrysler probably work there defender. YOU are ASSuming you know what I drive. Chrysler and other American car manufactures have MANY problems including car quality and the franchise/dealer system.

Chrysler's brand new baby, the Dart is not only over priced and not selling here but have quality problems already.
