I think Chrysler will fall to a market share of 7% next year and fail for good by 2013 when their share fall to under 5%. This company has little in the pipeline. Other than the Jeeps, the Dodge Ram and their minivans they have nothing to sell to a mass market. Fiat hasn't sold a car here since the early 80's and they pulled out of here for a reason they weren't very good. This was hail mary that won't work. Ford and GM I believe will survive.

If that's the case, I'm glad I bought a Camaro as opposed to the Challenger.

A car without a hemi is like a man without a butt - no torque on any stroke.

Chrysler's styling stinks! Their R&D must stink too!

While market share is something most companies strive for, there is no "magic number" under which a company will fail. See Gary Siete's post to illustrate this.

I will never support GM or Chrysler, considering what obama did to the original investors and the "gift" he gave to the unions.

They should have been allowed to go into a "normal" bankruptcy process, without a government intervention.

I'm sure those companies are shaking in their boots.
