Just Like Always

When the President told all of us that you could get service "just like always", I believed him. Unfortunately, the Auto Task Force isn't following the message delivered by the President, and I'm trying to continue to get the word out that only our customers are going to change the tide.

Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison and Senator Rockefeller are saying there will be hearings next week when Congress returns, but that may be too late. Even Congressman Roscoe Bartlett from my home state of Maryland is asking for an inquiry, holding a press conference at our dealership in Frederick, Maryland next Tuesday at 10:00am.

I need people to continue to email the White House: and tell the President to stop the unnecessary closure of dealerships.

Greta came by to see me again, and I have a message for the Auto Task Force.

Chrysler's Closing Dealers-but now they want to open more?

I think the media is really listening, and I hope customers are too. We need everyone to get in touch with their legislators and the White House because this is simply not going to do anything for Chrysler, especially when the front page of Automotive News stated Wednesday that Chrysler has open points and they're looking for more dealers.

The Detroit Thinking

I've spent the last several days responding to emails, questions and requests for interviews by the media on the heels of Chrysler's announcement to close dealerships, or as they technically say, to "reject franchise agreements." I hope you take a look at this C-Span broadcast that is a good summary of what's going on, and what this means to consumers.
