That makes me even more anxious to go out and purchase a Chrysler product. NOT! We really don't need that many car manufacturers, if all they are going to produce are trucks and SUV's. Subaru could merge with Toyota, Honda could merge with GM, and Nissan could just go away.

This is good news for Chrysler further delaying their demise. Although in the end, joining forces with yet additional car companies renown for producing poor-quality cars serves no purpose. Nissan, had fairly good quality prior to combining with Renault, which like Peugeot, was another French car company famous for poor engineering and build quality.

We also need to consider that these manufacturers are selling internationally where the car is more dominant than the truck or SUV.
