Was musing how we were told that the Big 3 automakers would become the Big 2, and how that never happened. GM seems to have turned it around the most; Ford stayed strong. Chrysler bought Fiat. (If any of this is wrong, please say so.) So, how is Chrysler doing with its Fiat import venture? (The Dodge Dart comes to mind.) Is it profitable?

Chrysler didn't buy Fiat. The US government gave the majority of Chyrsler to Fiat to get Sergio Marchionne to fix Chrysler's problems. Fiat then bought the rest of Chrysler and they are now merged (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles).

Quite frankly, the company called Chrysler "ceased to exist" a few years back. It was bankrupt and legally gone, at least as far as it's old shares and their value. What you have now is a new company called Chrysler owned by Fiat.

How is Chrysler a Limited Liability Company now? Maybe Fiat is Lee Iacocca version 2 for Chrysler, they seem to be doing good.

Exactly. Even a VW as a daily driver is scary enough laugh Any car I own better be able to not even flinch about going over 200,000 miles. I don't know much about Fiat, but I'd be afraid to attempt to pile some miles on one.

Fiat owns Chrysler and it is now no longer a US based company with a believe HQ in London or moving to London. Chrysler has not been a stand alone auto company since Diamler AG purchased them in 1998. Its the big 2, and has been for awhile.

Chrysler is paying for Fiat's lunch. Fiat sales are down and are a disappointment in the US. On the otherhand Chrysler is doing great with RAM and Jeep especially.
