In the Toledo area, Chrysler and GM are huge direct employers through their giant plants.
A few weeks ago, I took my Chrysler in to the Chrysler dealer here in northern Michigan—and the latest fixes cost me $1,400.
Barring some unforeseen roadblock, Chrysler could emerge a new company by the beginning of July.
U.S. automobile corporation, organized 1925 as Chrysler Corporation by Walter P. Chrysler (1875-1940) out of the old Maxwell Motor Co. (Maxwell produced a car named Chrysler in 1924). The name is a spelling variant of German Kreisler, perhaps related to kreisel "spinning top," but the sense connection is unclear.
