Ground-breaking for GM but nothing new for Chrysler

I read this same article in Wednesday's New York Times. Interesting that Chrysler made a profitable compact car (the 1GN Neon) while paying Belvidere workers full union wages but, of course, this article makes no mention of that. :roll:

ABOUT TIME !! ( that they are finally employing AMERICAN workers ) :thumbup:

Too bad it's not Chrysler that is building these, however. :(
I'd buy it, if it was !!

It is too bad, however, that Chrysler and M-B made the mistake of thinking "too upscale", and didn't want to build "economy" cars for "poor folks" (cough) anymore, and wanted to build only Big Trucks and SUV's......and that kind of thinking, almost killed them.

It looks really similar to an Aveo. But i like the hatch and the fact that it has a 6 speed! Depending on power i would consider getting one unless i found a srt for a good deal

Must be why they didn't make the Aveo RS
