Question Is the Chrysler Group for sale?

DaimlerChrysler reported third quarter earnings today of $686 million in net profit, but its Chrysler Group division dragged down that profit margin by posting a loss of $1.47 billion, a figure that completely erased the gain of $1.24 billion made by Mercedes-Benz. During a presentation today, DaimlerChrysler CFO Bodo Uebber didn't rule out the possibility that the Chrysler Group could be sold off. While far from saying the division has a For Sale on its windshield, Uebber told reporters, "We don't exclude anything here... We will do our analysis. Second, we will talk about measures. And third, we will draw our conclusions."

This would benefit Mercedes in which the retained profit could be re-invested to produce or introduce new things to their lineup's ie technological innovations etc

tru. It would make benz better, instead of having all the money that benz makes being used to make something else try to survive.

I had a dodge and it sucked. It Feel apart, it sucked on gas, and no matter how good I treated my leather it started to crinkle and crack! WTF! Argh! Not a fan of chrysler group, go figure my new awesome car owns them...
