Oooh. "Fix It Again, Tony" would have to change to
"Fix It Again, Torsten".

Re: Jeep may become a VW

Jeep used to be partially-owned by Renault back in the '80s. I used to get my 1986 Renault Alliance serviced at the local Chrysler/Jeep dealer.

Yeah, Jeep's been passed along like a cheap hooker over the years.

Re: Jeep may become a VW

So let me get this straight... Jeep: nice interiors (finally), but electrical issues? Yep, sounds like a VW!

Re: Jeep may become a VW

Can't be worse than what Fiat did with the Cherokee design.

We're STILL talking about THAT? Based on how it's selling, I'd say a lot of people LIKE the Cherokee, myself included. But I don't think Fiat had anything to do with its design.

I agree. I like the Cherokee design.

If it had been out when I was shopping for a new car, I probably would have ended up with one. You get a smaller SUV with a v6 engine and similar towing capacity as the Grand Cherokee v6, without the tow package upgrade (i.e. enough to tow my boat).

I have the sense, right or wrong, that the Jeep division is self-contained. After all, they are one of the few groups in Chrysler that have been consistently selling cars.

As for FIAT, I wouldn't think that they would be willing to sell off divisions just yet. They just got to the point where they can start leveraging Chrysler and the distribution channel.

Re: Jeep may become a VW

wait a min! I read that article. both fiat and vw denied any plans to merge/ buy Chrysler. so why was this thread even called "jeep may become a vw?" I just read the whole thing. and from what I read, jeep will not become a vw anytime soon.
