Exclamation Toyota Jeep Dealership

I just heard from one of our nurse's here in the plant, who's husband is an industrial engineer for Chrysler, that Cerebrus sold Jeep to Toyota today. I guess he was called into a meeting and told the news. This could be huge to all the Jeep plants since Toyota is non-union.

I think if this is true it would be a good thing.

Jeep is one of the few bright spots for Chrysler right now - don't think they would separate it from the rest of the fleet - I think it may be the only manufacturer in the Chrysler stable that has posted increased sales year over year (mainly due to new products and the 4 door wrangler)

That's what I was thinking, but she would have no reason to tell me a fib. I quickly googled the subject and came back with nothing. I guess we'll just have to watch the news and see what happens.

Unless Cerebrus was planning on closing down Chrysler right now, selling off their only profitable brand would not make any sense.
Now if things started to tank and they were trying to salvage some cash before shutting everything down selling off Jeep might happen but that is not going to happen.
