thank you for posting

always fun to read the comments... Stellantis ... as a poster said: sounds like the name of drug with potential side effects...


and Peugeot back in the US.... can't wait to see how long we will have to wait for parts...



and a little revenge... one of the 205 version had a concept flaw in the air filter box... driving thru a large puddle of water, would somehow admit enough water to hydrolock the engine and bust it... my dad had one... after 2 months of ownership, Bam, the dealer blamed him for driving in the rain... he still got a free engine after 3 weeks... but it was hard work...

May not happen now, due to brand overlap from all the different divisions under the umbrella. Another article mentions "consolidation" of manufacturers under Stellantis, but overlap sure sounds like it could be a problem with 14 marques.
I'm just waiting for when the Chrysler division is sold off, renamed under Dodge, or shuttered. Three minivan models and the old 300, still likely based on the "merger of equals" Benz subframe from almost two decades ago.

Stellantis sounds like the city that sunk. Coincidence or no?

That said, I'd still like a new Hellcat Durango or Ram Truck if I won the lotto!

To me, the new GW is a lot like the Commander when it came out. Too expensive to take seriously till it's a decade old and I feel like it's worth the price of admission used. I liked the Commander, crawled around some dealer models, but man, that price back then.

What's nuts is average new car prices are up over 30% from a decade ago. That is nuts:

I'll add that those 14 marques include the following, most of which I wouldn't touch because of the usual quality problems:
Peugeot, Citroen, DS, Vauxhall, Opel, Fiat, Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Maserati, Chrysler, Dodge. Jeep and RAM.

A funny story from Car and Driver I remember reading on the beautiful Alfa Romeo Giulia:
https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews...bility-update/

A quote from the article:
"It's sad when everyone is marveling that a new $80,000 vehicle didn't leave them stranded."

Thank you for your post. Yes, very common to euro brands... one of my neighbor who had a terminal disease cheered himself with a lamborghini... back on a flat bed the 2nd day of ownership... My Dad had a Lancia Beta in the late 70's, it ran without issues, of course he never his vehicle more than 20,000miles, His company paid for his miles.
