Daimler Chrysler is definitely having problems now - huge amount of unsold inventory. They are having to offer dealers $1000 extra profit to take more inventory.

Have you priced Chrysler stuff lately? It costs a LOT and no incentives. Thought about getting a Sebring. Checked the prices, lack of discounts, got a Focus for nearly half the price.

And I truley enjoy my Focus.

Chrysler has some hits with styling, but I haven't heard to much about there quality problems of past. I don't know if it has gotten better. Some styling is really bad. Bold is a gamble.. sometimes you win.. most times you loose. I do like the look of the charger.. but it is so friggen heavy.

Well DCX has history of boom and bust cysles... I heard last year people worried that it will bust again... because it is running out of ideas of what to do next, after the 300 hit a homerun....

This might not be an indication of bust...this year is predicted to be rough for everyone... but Iwill just ocntinue watching..
