Ever wondered why certain things on new cars you buy are totally screwed up and the dealer is pulling his hair out because his guys can't figure why something doesn't work right?
The fascinating thing is that these guys all think they have a right to the job and start jumping up to go nuts when a car-maker suggests that he's leaving the state.
The same guys would go nuts if Chrysler or GM started talking about a random drug test and possibly firing any guy that they determined was drinking on the job.
The last Chrysler I bought was from the 1986 period. Over the first year, I noticed five things in the interior that were screwed up in terms of the fit. I accepted these things. The last GM I owned was a Dakota pick-up from the 1995 period. I noted around twelve things that were odd with it after a year.
Around six years ago, I got into European cars. Frankly, they don't let a substandard car leave the factory. They don't allow drinking at a German car plant. Nor would you be staying long if they suspected you had drug issues. There's a difference in terms of quality.
My advice here....if you were thinking of a new car....and you look at this picture.....then I'd cross off Chrysler. And I'd think long and hard about leaving GM on the list of potential dealers.
