With Peugeot wanting to return to the USA, perhaps Sergio should cut a deal for Peugeot to sell in Chrysler Jeep dealers given that Chrysler has no product to speak of.

Sounds like the return of the Eagle Premier and Renault Alliance.

Indeed, but it keeps dealers in business and people employed. Besides, Peugeot can't be as horrible as Fiat. Yes, Peugeot will be horrible, but not Fiat horrible.

For many years (not that long time ago), Peugeot managed to top out the whole bottom end of the reliability lists in EUrope, usually together with the Chrysler Voyager, some older Kias and The VW minivans. Fiat was that slight margin better in those surveys...

That said, improvements have been made, build and material quality of the newest models (esp. the 3008 and 5008) are up with the best, but altogether we are still not talking Toyota levels of trouble free motoring. Will it be better than a Dodge Journey or Foaat 500L however? That is a definite yes....

WOW....4.8M cars recalled....

W/ Audi and Toyota - it was unintended acceleration...w/ FCA - it's the cruise won't turn off.

Not good news. At all.

Time to sell the whole shooting match to the Chinese or Hyundai-Kia so that quality can improve.

I am sure it is the dream of all German designers and engineers to make Alfa Romeos. But they'll only work on those cars if there is money, proper production and sales/after sales to support. Chinese investment should work.

Why would the Germans dream of working on the Edsel of Italian car companies? If anything they are laughing themselves silly at the Chrysler-LX-based--oops Giorgio-based Alfa Romeos and their stunning failure to generate appropriate sales.
