What will this be - owner #6 or #7 for FCA/Mopar? Time to let them die already. Few will miss them.

Sell it to them! Do it! We need to knock China down a peg or two, this is the perfect Trojan horse to give them.

We ended up getting our revenge for World War 2 (Wait, what? Shouldn't it have been the other way around? Oh well, USA, USA, USA) by costing Daimler and their monocled countrymen $40 cool billion with their disastrous union.

That would be awful if it were to happen.

Also, side note, I didn't know Pirelli was sold to the Chinese???!!!

I don't even want to think about how they would try to pronounce Pirelli.

They bought Volvo. They buy real estate like candy. Just have too much money and don't know what to do with it. I think it is a big problem and shouldn't be allowed, but won't be around long enough to see the outcome of all this.

Fiat has been trying to unload Chrysler for some time now. The shotgun marriage was doomed from the start.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

Including pretty much all of Hawaii, and TONS and tons of land/buildings from British Columbia all the way down to the Mexican border.

Unbelievable, the USA and Europe are in a race to the bottom in so many ways.

This is probably a good thing for FCA - one thing the Chinese have, is deep pockets.

Right now they're so constrained, they had to completely drop small and midsized cars.

Does the US have too much national pride invested in Chrysler for this to happen? Does it really even matter seeing that they are owned by the Italians and incorporated in the Netherlands?
