    Dodge used to get it. They made a very good truck for those that truly needed one.

    Now?!? Chrysler just don't get it.

    Hi Blackbelt:

    ___You asked for links and I provided. Apparently the Telegraph and the Times disagree with your appraisal. The BMW 118d is the current European World Green Car of the Year while the all-new Ford Fiesta is Europe's current “Car of the Year”. And both for very good reasons. No mention of the Fiat 500 or Ka as they cannot match either in FE, performance, utility and the price is also that of the Fiesta to begin with. If you have seen the rear leg/seat room in the Fiesta, you are not going to touch a Ka/500 which guarantees it will be a sales flop here as a niche vehicle in the US for the exact reasons the Times and Telegraph noted. It is an uncomfortable mess and it is not a Ford/Mazda underpinning but a Fiat one.

    ___If you believe Chrysler is going to become profitable on a 2 to 3,000 sales per month Fiat 500 niche vehicle, heaven help Chrysler and the rose colored glasses that they are looking through.

    ___Good Luck
