Struggling US giant temporarily halts production
18 December 2008

Chrysler will shut down all of its factories for a month from 19 December, the company has announced.

Bosses at the beleaguered car maker have blamed the worsening economic circumstances for the action.

They say their dealer chiefs have plenty of prospective buyers, but very few can get credit for a car.

The US's third-biggest car manufacturer also admits that it's trying to achieve a better balance between supply and demand for its products.

Workers are getting an extended Christmas break on 95 per cent pay.

Has anyone ever watched King of Cars on one of the pointless Sky channels?

These guys are based in Vegas, and supposedly show a typical American car buyer. If you haven't, I recommend to do so. You will see why the Americans are having trouble selling cars at the moment.



It's all about the twisties........
