Definitely a huge move for Chrysler!

That sure as hell won't hurt Chrysler.

Chrysler has some good designs and engines. The cars are heavy and pricey to boot. Might be interesting to see what happens a couple years down the road.

As long as he doesn't somehow try to make Chrysler vehicles look like Toyotas, then it'd be a good thing.

Yeah he doesn't/didn't have anything to do with design at either company, so that won't be affected.

Good, cause if Chrysler ends up making something even REMOTELY resembling this giant pile of manure:
I'm going to have to stab someone.

H8R

Speaking of which, I saw an Element the other day that had "H2" badging. Funny stuff.

**** straight.

The owner of that vehicle should be beaten. He only WISHES he could get a H2.

The FJ and the Element need to have an ugly-off.
That'd be a close race.
Lucky for them the Aztek isn't around to claim the title anymore.

Hell, even the Aztek looked better than that.
I saw one vehicle earlier..when I was out jobhuntin.....it wasn't a FJ..looked like a smaller "edgier" version of it, with more pointy edges...I didn't get a good look at it but it was totally horrendous.

He should be beaten for wanting an H2.

Formerly defunct.
