What do you think the selling ( ) of Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge to another company will do to the line of Jeep products?

If it gets sold to GM, they will F it up like they did to Hummer. if it goes to ford, they will F it up like they did to Jaguar and to Land Rover. how bout we find a really rich jeep owner to buy it and keep it pure.

acutally - I would dispute that Ford F'ed up Jaguar. Jaguar has been a struggling car company for some time. At the very least Jaguar benefited from Fords ability to make it run and drive without leaking oil or shorting out. Jaguar needs to be able to stand on its own, without ownership of a big car company. ...I will save the rest for the Jag forum...sorry...i am done.. I had to say it..

Well, now it's a little later and Chrysler was sold. TO a non-car company no less. I hope they don't turn out to be corporate raiders. Plymouth & Oldsmobile are history, not for that reason. But, I think the future looks bleak.

That's probably the same question that has been asked when Willys sold Jeep to Kaiser, then AMC. I remember all the negative attention surrounding the sale to Chrysler. At the time, Plymouth/Chrysler was making the "K' car...if that tells you anything! People were afraid the tough Jeep would go soft.

If Ford bought Jeep, wouldn't it be kind of fitting since they had an integral part of its birth? The Jeep brand is too valuable and popular to just be "raided" and dismantled. Oldsmobile just lost its connection with the mainstream public. Plymouth was absorbed into Chrysler because the cars became almost mirror images of each other.

I think Jeep would stand on its own. Break away from the "Big Car Company" umbrella...
