Inside Chrysler: "Where's My Bailout?
Hi Robert, I saw this letter to the editor in December 15th Automotive news and thought it might be of interest. – Glenn
To the Editor:
Hey, Chrysler, remember me? I’m the dealer who sold your K cars, your Omni Misers (that got in excess of 35 mpg – where are they now?). I stocked and sold your minivans with air and transmission problems. I sold your 2.7-liter sludged engines and then had to tell my customers it was their lack of maintenance that caused the $6,000 problem. I sat on your dealer councils and advertising boards for years.
I attended your new-car shows at my expense because my district manager said he needed all his dealers to be there, then listened to the same speech about how things will get better next year but please order more cars this year to help the company. I played your unfair Volume Performance Allowance game. I did it all.
And when I finally had a chance to transfer my franchise, four days before closing, you folks decided you didn’t like the new owner’s location and facility.
So after my bankruptcy, loss of my home and loss of my IRA, where’s my bailout?
I agree with those feeling sorry for dealers...not. I wonder if Markie Sundberg ever filed a warranty or transportation claim that was just a little "shady" shall we say.
I don't feel the least bit sorry for him or Chrysler. People are losing the shirts off their backs and this jackass writes us an exposee on the operation of sleaze he ran back in the day. Have fun feeding and clothing your family this year, Mark Sundberg, whoever the hell you are, you piece of shite.
