See Cerberus? The Magnum is up this month...go kill the tanking compass or the Commander...that had a rough month.

Charger sales remain pretty steady.

300 dipped a bit.

They are being hurt by the Durango and Commander the most. Interesting how the Aspen is actually up.

No that great of a month...lots of work to do.

I don't get it...they're killing the Magnum, Pacifica, and PT Cruiser which are all still selling decently...and keeping duds such as the Aspen, Compass, and Commander. It makes no sense!

Only the PT convertible is being dropped. The Pacifica is a dated hog and they don't need anymore SUV's. Also, its a Daimler design. Magnum needs to make way for Challenger, and its not really selling in #'s to justify the extra costs.

Commander and Compass are next. Also, I predict a crash [quicker] restyle of the Sebring.

It's not an SUV it's a Crossover, it competes with the Lambdas more or less. It has a great interior and good powertrains...but it is past its prime. The Magnum doesn't make extra costs besides the front fascia. It's sold in other markets as the 300 Touring.

Wel I am baffled by this website. I have been doing my research and the Sebring will be at around 80k for 07, which isn't bad at all. I have read expert reviews and consumer reviews, all mostly good. They even like the styling because its not a big chunk of vanilla blandness.

In saying that, I do have a bias for Chrysler, but, its not the dud most of you make it out to be.
