Chrysler should be treated the same way the Toyota was treated. A congressional hearing and heavy fines are in order. I believe Daimler owns about 50% of Chrysler
Clip:
Doors that could catch fire, brakes that could fail and accelerators that could stick have caused Chrysler Group LLC to recall nearly 600,000 vehicles involving five models in the United States, U.S. safety regulators said on Monday.

The difference is that Chrysler acted correctly and brought the defects to the attention of the NHTSA. Toyota spent years stonewalling and ignoring the problem.

Toyota will pay the government a $16.4 fine for failing to disclose its cars’ pedal problems in a timely manner. Legally, automakers are required to recall a car five days after finding a defect.


Daimler sold it's ownership in Chrysler back in 2007.

Not to change the subject here but it's a footrace between GM and Chrysler to see who goes bellyup first.

I think it's a matter of time before someone buys the diamond in the rough (Jeep) from them.

On April 30, 2009, Chrysler LLC filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and announced a plan for a partnership with Italian automaker Fiat.[10] On June 1, Chrysler LLC stated they were selling some assets and operations to the newly formed company Chrysler Group LLC.[11] Fiat will hold a 20% stake in the new company, with an option to increase this to 35%, and eventually to 51% if it meets financial and developmental goals for the company.

On June 10, 2009, the sale of most of Chrysler assets to "New Chrysler", formally known as Chrysler Group LLC was completed. The federal government financed the deal with US$6.6 billion in financing, paid to the "Old Chrysler", formally called Old Carco LLC, which remained in Chapter 11 bankruptcy
