Bill Burke Posted: 12/16/2009 7:16am PST I don't believe the sluggish sales at Chrysler and GM are so much a result of perception as it is of this lousy economy. Chrysler in particular is impacted by a dependance on larger vehicles and right now, these are moving slowly. I also belive the "GREEN VEHICLE" myth has been oversold by this administration and its' minions with no exit strategy when it proves impractical and poorly thought out(again). How much additional polution, oil and coal resources are consumed and what do we do with those batteries we use in the hybrids? Who would buy a used hybrid that will need a $5000 battery in four or six months? Feel good progressive are to blame, not Chrysler and GMs' reputation,already and unfairly tarnished by like minded journalists.
