They could have sure, but why leave it to chance, almost everyone I know is employed in the automotive industry, and I know we would all be unemployed if it had not happened the way it did.

Chrysler might have been gone, but not Jeep. I watch CNBC every morning and I remember there were a least a half dozen entities hoping for the chance to buy Jeep.

I do wonder when it comes to jobs, what percentage of U.S. auto workers are building 'foreign' brands.

That doesn't change the fact a ton of jobs would be lost... I don't think any of them would disappear if they were to go under a lot of different companies would be going under too... Like who I work for.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

That's the thing about the bailout. It didn't just save the big manufacturers. It was structured with the foresight to help out the little distributors across the country that also needed aid. The consequences of doing nothing would have been catastrophic. But that's the last battle and I'm not sure why some seem intent on continuing to fight it. Obama won, handily. Can we move on now and continue fixing what's needing fixing?

Being that Jeep is an iconic American brand the likely candidates, imo, would of been GM and Ford which both did a botch job on Saab,Volvo,Jaguar, Range Rover,Aston Martin and others that don't come to mind.

Total US workers in auto and parts manufacturing as of February 2013 stands at 788K per BLS stats..no breakdown of "foreign" brands but there is a state by state breakdown and guessing that many of the "foreign" plants are mostly in Dixie.

Or, maybe Fiat would have bought Jeep, like they did!

Do you know something different than what's on VOTS? I really don't know if I trust it. It went from stage to stage every day. So it took 3 days of assembly to get to Final Inspection. I doubt it really takes that long to go through the plant. I was hoping that VOTS is just artifically updated slowly to give us something to look at. I really hope it is on a truck somewhere, not sitting in a repair queue.
