    Well, Fiat is the shit, so hopefully things will work out in the end.

    Fiat will make a buttload of money if they can hold on for the next 10 years.

    agreed. i think we need to rely more on cars that serve a purpose rather than decide your status aka SUV's.

    this is the US though so we know that won't happen. our opinions about people seem to stem from house/car. fuck morals and personality this nigga has an escalade!

    Apparently Chrysler laid off its webmaster. The Crossfire hasn't been built since 2007, and its still on chrysler.com

    uh wasn't it like 35% US and 12.5% Canada?

    And as for the % stake.

    US population: 304 million
    Canada population: 33 million

    People will do whatever the fuck they want.

    For now, people believe they can't afford luxury items including SUVs. When the economy recovers, people will be back to buying the biggest/flashiest/most powerful of whatever is out there, whether its a house on wheels or a V12 sport sedan.

    There's a sociological/biological imperative to outrank and outdo other human beings.

    The Escalade is damn nice, and so is the Tesla. People should have the right to choose.

    The government also paid Fiat billions in our tax money to take Chrysler. They don't have to repay anything.

    Can somebody tell me how many employees Chrysler has/had? I don't include dealership employees.

    When I divide $22.1 billion by 30,000 (admittedly picked out of my ass) I get $736,666 per employee.
