ROFLMAO!!! OK...Chryslers of the '80s, NICE CARS??? I cleaned way too many of those to agree. I've never seen a bunch of vehicles with worse horrid build quality. There was an '81 Imperial I washed every week for an old guy who used to be an aircraft carrier captain...I took care of it for him since new. Despite weekly washings and frequent waxings, the paint went bad after only four years, and the fake rabbit fur carpeting forward of the front seats turned GREEN. That, and he had to replace just about every piece of interior trim around the windsheild twice because it came unglued and started fraying. Then, there was the '84 LeBaron convertible, white with that awful Town & Country leather interior. The brown carpets on that one turned green, too, and the leather was faded all along the tops of the seats. That car was only five or six years old when I cleaned it for the first time.
Having driven a few examples of the early K car and later LeBaron convertibles, I can safely say I have never been in anything that squeaked and rattled as much, or flexed as much during cornering or going over uneven pavement. When Chrysler took the roof off those cars, just about all the stiffness was eliminated from the chassis.
Talking cars, whether the Nissan Maxima or Chrysler products, always annoyed the crap out of me. Chrysler's synthesised male voice was much worse than Nissan's female, IMHO. Glad that's gone, too.
I'm really glad Chrysler went through its reorganisation and is producing quality vehicles now. The 300M and Viper are really killer. I hope they continue the current trend; from those concept car pics, it looks like they will. BTW, does anyone know how much say Diamler Benz has in the current model line-up?
Looks like they have quite a bit of say.
