I just hope they don't mess with the dodge truck design. GM trucks are getting fuglier every year and I've always been a GM fan.

if gm does buy dodge then i will have to start buying ford i hate gm every one i have owned broke down so much i put more money in to it than it was worth. and there hard to fix if you never fixed one before.

when i got my dodge every one said the transmission was gonna blow up on me well (dont take care of it and it will) its still the same one and it drives and still shifts fine and the best part was i had it for 2 years and all i replaced was the wheel hubs, brake lines, axle bearing, and 2 sets of tires (drive it like you stole it) tires go fast 114,000 and still going

This chevy i bought i tried to drive it a little hard and shot a piston out the block and locked the transmission in 4th and it only had 76,000 on it had to sell it with the blown motor and a locked up transmission. after that i only bought one more chevy and it took so much to get it going and it was only a 1992 but it keep staling out all the time like it didnt get enough gas then it would get to much some thing in the computer was messed up so i parted it out to at least get a little more than i paid for it

I've heard this too, but I doubt the credibilty of it now. Chrysler is posting some good numbers now, and there are rumors of greater and better things to come.

I seen somewhere a autoparts supplier from Canada is looking into buying Chrysler from the Germans.

I doubt the gov't is going to bail Chrysler out again if they didn't do it the first time there would only be Ford Chev and GMC in the North American made trucks.
