Sergio, and the Agnellis had no long term vision of running a viable automaker they had a 10 year plan to sell the merged enterprise and ride off into the sunset...Sergio will probably get a fat paycheck if he succeeds. All of this also fits in with all the big plans that Sergio releases (which all happen after 2018), and his planned retirement in 2018.
The only interested customers I can think of would be a Chinese company with lots of cash interested in a US/EU dealer network and tier 1 automaker knowhow. No other tier 1 automaker would be interested in this mess.
Are you a lawyer or corporate insider ? any Facts to back up your opinion ?
And before you ask, no I do not, my opinions are JUST opinions, and most off them can be "filed" . . . well, you know . . .

Nope, lots of reading and research before deciding not to invest in FCA gave me that feeling. Fiat is much worse than people thing, and it will only get worse if the eurozone slips into recession

FCA getting ready to announce NEW 5 year plan

I tend to disagree with everything that was just said.
I'm a proud Jeep fan so of course I would have liked to hear Sergio say we will never merge and no one can equal our abilities and so on and so on. But false bravado is a recipe for becoming extinct.

And say what you will about FCA, the current regime allowed product line development like never before.
I went from owning a Maserati an MB S550 and GL to where my current garage has a grand Cherokee overland a Durango RT and charger hellcat sitting next to my Maserati. And when I do take the Maserati out now that I have a hellcat, it feels kind of slow and weak. That's a Ferrari V8 I just bad mouthed.......

So if anything is wrong with FCA, It is that the operational guys don't get the new design cycles shorter and that they don't have the grand Wagoneer a full size jeep pickup, and a ram based SUV on the market today to still some sales from the competition.

If they get the new product introductions under control they will keep making money! And profitability is all you need to keep going.

Re: FCA getting ready to announce NEW 5 year plan

If it hadn't been for Fiat, would there even be a Chrysler today? Chrysler was not exactly rolling in cash and IIRC was on the verge of, or actually was in bankruptcy. Jeep might have survived, but would most likely be wearing a GM or Ford emblem today.

I don't know whether or not Sergio is doing the right thing, but he has a better view of the global scene than most of us.

LOL. If it hadn't been for the Government they wouldn't have survived. Jeep wouldn't be wearing a GM badge either because they to wouldn't of been here.

I think Sergio is looking to pass off to the highest bidder, conglomerate. He was pushing for the GM merger (may still be) and now he's in talk with Ford to take collaborate on the compact car line (Dart/200). If he doesn't win big with the new 5 year plan, we will see a huge change.
