That merger was dissolved and Chrysler was bought by the investment capital firm already mentioned and is now known as Chrysler LLC.

Chrysler Corporation never owned Daimler AG. There is no such company called Mercedes-Benz. Dieter Zetsche is Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars (a Division of Daimler AG).

Hope this clears it up for you.

Thank you, Dr. J...

If it helps America through it's current crisis, I say go ahead! We can take it, after all we're Canadian!

Blame Canada!!

My understanding is MB purchased the perpetual #3 US automaker. Some positives came out of it. Some crossover vehicles, like sprinters and and interesting? sedans. In the end MB was glad to dump it without losing to much skin, or face.
