1970 Charger is on a distinguished road

I get what you're saying, but they should not be allowed to keep those dealers. The supreme court ruled that if a new company takes over, they do not have to keep employees.
These dealers were told almost 10 years ago that they needed to become Alpha dealers. Which means that they needed to have Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep at one location. Most of them did not do that, along with bad customer satisfaction ratings, low dealer sales, and customer lawsuits - these dealers lost their franchises. I would have been done alot quicker if it were a different type of franchise, and they did not meet the franchises criteria - like a Napa/Car Quest/ or Jiffy Lube. The one thing that Chrysler did that was totally wrong was to not spread out the territory's for the dealers. By me, there was a dealer every 15 minutes away. The saturated the territory's with too many dealers, which cut down on the dealers ability to have volume and profits.
