From Business Week:

Fiat 500 will go to Mexico

Posted by: David Welch on August 17

Critics of Detroit’s carmakers could play a real game of gotcha with Chrysler. News reports today say the company will build the Fiat 500 subcompact at Chrysler’s plant in Toluca, Mexico, which builds the Chrysler PT Cruiser and Dodge Journey. Since Fiat owns 20% of Chrysler, the Italians can call the shots. Critics of the auto industry bailout and the government’s 8% ownership stake in Chrysler might say that we spent a few billion dollars to save Chrysler and guarantee Mexican jobs. But build that car here and the same critics could say that the government and the United Auto Workers, which owns 55% of Chrysler, swayed management to keep the jobs in the U.S.

This is what you get when you let union thugs take over a company using a socialist adminstration as their proxy. The idiots thought they could order Fiat, a semi-private foreign company, to do their bidding. Instead they are avoiding the U.S. trap and playing the Chrysler employees and unions as the whores they are. You got your government largess and the only thing you have to show for it thus far are Americans like myself who will NEVER purchase a UAW assembled new vehicle ever again because I refuse to finance this administration and its thug supporters.

Enjoy your bailout America. You’re getting exactly what you deserve:

Used.

  1. I blows me away when I hear the media government hacks tell us the recession was over in May as I heard from abc radio news this morning.
    Are there any Oscar awards for – The ability of Government Media Studio Production’s to decieve the masses ?

    Eventually the used up whore’s will get out of bed and find out theres nothing left in the shack.
    Watch out for them in the angry streets with anything they have left to throw at their pimps.
    The govt media pimps know what’s coming ,just what we see in Mexico and worse.

  2. Well another great investment in our system from that smart bailout plan.
    Just keeps getting worse and worse. However the one thing the government
    does not see is they lose this one and there is nothing they can do about that.
    Government, your days of oppression are almost over……….

  3. It will be built by Mexicans, for Mexicans and there is a good article on the matter over at TheTruthAboutCars.com). As if Fiat was going to suddenly become a domestic company….they found a bargain and a foothold into the Americas market by snapping up the Crysis Corp. assets for a song.

    American’s wouldn’t buy it anyway as it is honestly too small for Joe Sixpack, and it does not meet US/Canadian safety, insurance, or emissions requirements. Good thing too, as I can easily see several of them smashed like love bugs on the grilles of Sedan de Villes being driven by Florida-bound octogenarians.
