Two Jedi Knights have been dispatched to address the 'concerns' Mr. Ghosn has with the Alliance. He'll prove no match for the Jedi.

Mark this well.

Won't happen in a million years.

I hope this GM merger falls through. GM needs to work out its problems on its own. Pillaging Chrysler for liquidity to buy them time is irresponsible and won't do anything but delay the losses for a little bit longer. Ford took a totally different path than GM that earned them plenty of criticism the last couple years; modest product updates and delaying launches until a global rollout was ready. Now we're starting to see the benefits; Ford has more cash on hand and narrower losses, enough to float them until 2010. They are on the verge of releasing the new global models, a new 38 mpg Fusion, and they have a modestly updated F-150 out that is apparently selling fairly briskly.

I don't think GM spent nearly as much time streamlining operations and cleaning house as Ford has, and adding Chrysler to the mess will just delay the inevitable. Unfortunately, it's gotten to the point where GM is in such dire straights that they are doing anything to survive, even if it means 75,000 jobs at Chrysler go away. I hope the loans can float GM until the economy improves, but I'm really losing faith in GM's leadership.

My ideal buyer for Chrysler is Hyundai. I don't really care for Hyundai, but I'd rather have them do it than GM. Hyundai would make greater inroads to the US market with an expanded dealership network and could build up Chrysler as a credible luxury brand (I don't see Hyundai ever moving out of the near-lux category). Hyundai could use a competitive truck and would probably keep the Dodge brand around as a truck/SUV brand (and maybe a specialty car or two like the Challenger). Jeep would also be an asset for them.
