$2.99 gas doesnt do you any good if the car wont go.

My friend worked for the local Chrysler/GM dealership and said they have to keep at least 1 of every Chrysler transmission in stock at all times because they fail so often. No so with the GMs. I already have heard time and time again of young failed Chrysler transmissions but this pretty much took the cake. Also this video he got from when he worked at the Ford dealer across the road, comparing the Ram with the F150. The Ram did so horribly that he said Chrysler threatened to sue if they didnt stop showing it. He gave me a copy that I still might have somewhere. I know other companies have had issues too, but at least to me, Chrysler builds junk moreso than the other makers.
