Hmmm, this is interesting, though I agree with Tom on this one, the ones shut down should be the first to get theirs back (provided they aren't t'd off so much for having had it stuck to them with a lot full of vehicles and parts inventories, which, by the way, Chrysler insisted on them buying, that they couldn't sell), and provided they also meet the requirements for a franchise. On the flip side, too, though, a franchise, as with any other business, it sometimes is all about location, location, location, and if you don't have the right product for the market you are trying to sell to, then bye bye birdie.

I don't live in a very big city, so there isn't a dealership on every corner, like Baton Rouge, for example, but now, on the western end of my parish, there is no Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge dealer anymore

I understand it from the standpoint of streamlining, but hopefully when they re-ermerge from all this, they will have "streamlined" the bloated and top-heavy parts of the company in order to be leaner and generally more competitive.
