    why? They were never ever built here....NO jobs were ever lost....in fact, jobs were created in US and Canada being that parts were vendored out to assemble on this continent...its all PLUS no negative.
    all he could do is force the USPS to buy from say Ford for the Transit or Mercedes for The Sprinter..since they are now making them here...

    Are you saying the vehicles used prior to the Promaster weren't built here? If they were then yes it could be jobs lost.

    Not to mention, somewhere they decided to NOT build the plant here in the first place. However. I almost said "as an American company" but then I realized that it has been a long time since they were an American company.

    That being said, I do believe that our government should buy vehicles made here if at all possible

    Daimler Chrysler is still an American company in essence and I imagine the bidding process is open to all...

    Sorry it hasn't been Dahmer Chrysler since 07. Chrysler is now a subsidiary of Fiat.

    Well after making my morning run yesterday, the engine was making more noise than ever. I called the boss, and he finally said to have the mechanic to look it over. When the mechanic heard the noises coming from the engine, he put the truck out of service. Now it's a waiting game to see just what is wrong with the engine, and how long it's going to take to repair.

    I've been watching the story. The dealers / manufacturers are very skilled at the runaround, making you think they're on it...had a Mazda myself that lost an engine due to their defective rear heater hoses, everybody refused to help up to the president of Mazda but by that time 2 years later I did it myself for $1000 and said to hell with them

    Never again will I buy a vehicle from a manufacturer or a dealer. Anyone in my family that wants to ever speak to me again won't either.

    I do appreciate all of you that freely give your money away so I can buy used later. For me it's a lifetime ban. Being in the US I'd be suing for vehicle and loss of income, in Charity's case
