Default Chrysler's Employee/Dealership Employee Incentives

I noticed that Chrysler launched some pretty aggressive incentives for their employees and dealership employees. For some vehicles (Grand Cherokee Limited) it appears that there's more than $10,000 in incentive money.

Will these incentives help close the month on a strong note or are people too worried about their jobs to make a major purchase?

First: Anything will help!!! And, this potentially can help... Thank You.

Second: Isn't the target audience of this incentive, the same group of people who are wondering if they'll even have a job next month!?

That's what I was thinking too.

I was reading the AutoExtremist.com site where he was predicting that as many as 90% of the White Collar jobs could be lost if GM took over Chrysler.

Granted that he's somewhat of an alarmist, but you have to figure that most Chrysler employees are probably dealing with more uncertainty in their lives now than in any time in the past. And given Chrysler's background, that's saying a lot.....

I remember back in the days when the Dodge Ram was red hot that there were a number of Chrysler Employees from the St. Louis plant that were doing exactly what you described. They were almost running their own little Auto Brokerage on the side.

Eventually they got caught and Chrysler tightend up the program in an effort to prevent the abuses.

Unhappy I guess the news of a 25% reduction in staff won't help this program

If there was a Chrysler Employee that was thinking of purchasing a new vehicle to take advantage of these incentives, the e-mail they received from Nardelli this morning may have changed their mind.

Chrysler announced that there's going to be another reduction in their White Collar workforce. This time it's a 25% cut and it starts next month.
