The government( our tax money) already lost 1.3 billion on Chrysler. Not to mention that Fiat bought Chrysler from the Gov for next to nothing. The whole thing was funded by "We the People" so yea, if they went belly up then sayonara Chrysler. They won't though. They are to big to die.

Ive owned three dodges now and the first one I got royally ****ed up the *** so bad I was baisiclly forced to go back cause nobody else would do nothin. So yea I will stick it to them anyway I can, call me whatever you want I dont care. I see it as getting my moneys worth.

Its probably been 10 years since this elevated risk of fire from rear end collisions was first in the news. Further evidence of how bogus the claim is . . .

Its pretty sad that there are people out there looking for any handout(freebee). Most people that are excited about this are probably the same people on welfare, complaining about the economy and how life is not fair, even though they are able bodied that could get a job. Maybe not a high salary job, but a job. These fools crack me up, at the same time wanting to smack some sense into them.

No one should give two ****, right or wrong, that Chrysler has to buy a bunch of trailer hitches. Unless youre a stockholder. Can someone explain to me why people are against this, even if its pointless?

This is what's wrong with America. I'm guessing your either a liberal or just plain "special".

Well I played that card cause its a legitimate claim is it not? My daughters safety is just as important. Besides I dont really have to explain myself im just as honest as everyone else. Arguing about it isnt going to change the fact that 80% of the people here will probably go in.

This is total bs. I installed a westin tow hitch years ago so I could tow vehicles when the need arises. It had nothing to do with safety, it was about not having to hook a chain to some random spot under my jeep and screw something up. Even if I didn't have a hitch, I wouldn't go get one on principle. Every single vehicle I've owned had the gas tank between the axle and bumper, just like almost every vehicle on the road, and it hasn't been an issue. It seems like the media is just a tool for persuading mindless sheep of whatever the gov't or whoever wants. There should be no recall, or recall every single vehicle on the road since every one has some kind of remote risk.

Well he does have a point though. However its been proven that having a hitch or having a hitch and skid plate will strenghten the rear up a bit.

No one can claim they are doing this solely for safety. If it was about safety, they would have gotten a factory hitch installed or spent a bit of time and grabbed a junkyard hitch.

Oh, I know. It was the other things he said that made me say that. Sort of kidding, sort of not. I mean- they really ARE watching and listening...in case you weren't aware.

People can get "suicided" for thinking too much, you know...
