Actually, the borrowing of components was better for Mercedes because it allowed them to lower the costs of producing their cars while bringing up the cost of Chrysler's cars. (Not something that is needed in the market Chrysler is in.) If Iacocca could/would come back, Chrysler would probably own the whole US market in a few years.

Stand corrected.

It may have been an advantage for both, but there is no question that the mb based Chrysler 300 was one of their biggest sellers for a long time.

Anyone know how to set up a Poll so we can show the preference for Daimler AG or Daimler-Benz AG. I agree with most here that Daimler-Benz AG is much better. A big poll just might influence the outcome.
