I see in the news (Detroit Press and NBC News) that the last Chrysler 200 rolled off the line today. It really was depressing to read it, even though we all knew it was coming. This car and it's designers and workforce were attacked and publically insulted by their own CEO, (Sergio the axeman) and bashed unmercifully and unfairly by the press. It deserved better. Consumer Reports must have felt pretty satisfied today, their savagely skewed review had the power to help kill off a very capable car. I thought about that review on the way home from work today as I thoroughly enjoyed my Chrysler 200 with it's "raspy" engine and "klutzy" handling.
I guess the good news is that our cars are now collectors items! Take that Sergio!
