Renault was part of Chrysler back when they sold the AMC Alliance and Eagle Medallion. Car manufacturers buy, sell, merge and dissolve companies as often at banks do.
Yep I remember.
You both have a somewhat hazy memory of what actually happened.
Renault teamed up with AMC which didn't turn out so well.
Chrysler then bought AMC from Renault to gain access to the Jeep brand.
This proved wise, since FCA as it is now would already be dead were it not for Jeep.
Chrysler was contractually obligated to continue the manufacture of certain Renault designs, hence the short-lived Eagle brand.
