Sergio Marchionne On A September To Forget

Keep in mind, Chrysler’s incentives were averaging $4,908 per vehicle in September. Marchionne’s going to be singing the “ask me again in the medium-to-long-term” song for a while.

    An AVERAGE incentive approaching ~$5k????? Is that figure right? Good god.

    I wonder even when they bring over cars from Fiat if they can restore Chrysler/Dodge. From what I have read in Consumer Reports and elsewhere, Fiat's current cars in Europe are not exactly models of reliability.

    his accent was not a problem, but the quality of the sound was. What the hell did he say, if anything? As far as $5k and even $6k incentives, these were ROUTINELY given by the automakers (not Honda, but most others) at the end of each model year. In 2009, these same discounts were given, unvoluntarily, by US, the long-suffering Taxpayers that are bailing out these losers, to the tune of $4,500 a car for 700,000 clunker replacements.

    Fiat's product lineup makes the K-cars look big. I haven't said anything about durability/reliability.
