1992-1997 Chrysler Concorde Series I [LH]
carcrasher88 US (13)Some of the commercials in '93 for the Concorde mentioned some of the same things, but there were multiple versions, longer and shorter, along with a few other different ads as well. 2018-01-08 16:50

Mieguy wrote But i didnt knew we just list two different cars because one engine is not available in the USA. Thats weird.

Those were not my words, I don't agree with that. You can see my explanation in my reply to you.

I think Rinspeed can change the return button. Nevertheless, when you click it, you will find out on what page you are.

Mieguy DE (78)Yes, we have been over this. But i didnt knew we just list two different cars because one engine is not available in the USA. Thats weird.

And could you please add "Return Jeep (USA)" under the logo instead of just Jeep? I always get confused because i cant see on the car page if its US or Europe or if both versions are on one page.

1992-1994 Nissan Altima (Stanza Altima) MkI
carcrasher88 US (13)When introducing the first generation Altima, Nissan parodied two iconic Lexus commercials, 'Balance' (1989, LS400) and 'Ball Bearing' (1992, ES300).

In both commercials, they still remained complimentary of Lexus, but also showed that their affordable midsizer could perform just as well, all at a starting price of $13,000 (equal to a little over $22,000 in 2017).

A version of the 'Balance' parody was also made for the Hong Kong market Bluebird in 1994.

I think we have been over this before, but yes. We need Jeep (Europe), because some models are different for the European market. Of course, some models look the same for both markets, but if we only list them on the Jeep page, Jeep (Europe) will be very empty and not representative of the European market. Listing those cars twice seems like the best option, even if I would prefer not having to.

1981-1983 Datsun 200SX Series II
carcrasher88 US (13)In case anyone's wondering why I put the same commercial for both bodystyles of this 200SX, it's because both bodystyles were equally featured in the ad.

Also, I listed it as 1981 because that's the copyright date (seen seconds into the ad), even though it's listed on YT as a 1982 commercial.

That really only applies to the model year of the car.

Ten were made, British reviewers even test drived the car (and made a semi-serious review out of it). As only one was sold, I would see it as a one-off production car (like Ferrari and Lamborghini also do sometimes).

2014-2017 Chrysler 200 Series II [CUSW]
Mieguy DE (78)Fiat at least earned a small but profitable customer base by selling cheap cars with good equipment features at base.

I personally loved the design of the Chrysler 200 and wanted to buy one, but it was too difficult for me to get one (i had to drive to the german harbor of Rostock). If i already knew the car was good i would have bought it anyway, but i dont drive 800 kilometers to Rostock, do a Test Drive and then notice its shit and drive back again...

Oh and the new Jeeps are all awful, people who drive them as rental cars in Germany always complain about them.

Yeah. Just like you said Chrysler is sinking ship for many years.
But this is no way for them to get going again.

But again customers who are buying the cars are the key. And just like I said before 70% of them have no idea about cars, they just buying them because A) They heard that make is good or B) Someone on internet i am fan of is driving that car, so I must drive it too.

Here is the quote from Tucker: The Man and His Dream movie. "And one day, we're gonna find ourselves at the bottom of the heap, instead of king of the hill, having no idea how we got there; buying our radios and our cars from our former enemies!" This is Tucker speech to the jury back in 50's when he was in the court, and the jury laughed at that comment, and look what car is best seller in US.
If the US let smaller manufacturers come with new ideas, instead of focusing on 'Big Three' they will still be on the top of vehicle industry.

Mark0 wrote "It was discontinued due to lack of profitability and as the result of FCA’s strategy of exclusively manufacturing trucks in North America."

FCA have some very brigh leadership. Mixing US and Italian isn't good thing. Cadillac Allante and Chrysler TC for example.
Damn it, Fiat is most common car in Serbia, they have factory here, but people don't like them and are only buying them for low prices.

All of Chrysler has been a sinking ship or many many years. I don't think any existing American car manufacturer has been close to bankruptcy as many times as Chrysler.
In the 70s, they failed to adapt to the economic situation, and kept building big cars when fuel prices were very high. They partnered with Mitsubishi -> failed.
In the 80s, they were saved by a cheap and uninspiring compact car (the K-Car) and bought AMC, which wasn't doing well at all, just so they could have Jeep.
In the late 90s, they partnered with Mercedes -> didn't work. At the end of the 2000s, they hit rock bottom and merged with Fiat (which struggles to compete with big corporations like Renault-Nissan, Volkswagen, GM).

Now FCA's boss has greatly improved Chryslers when you compare them to the 2000s models, but they aren't competitive at all if you look beyond price (and horsepower in case of Dodge). Dodge and Jeep crossovers are doing very well (funny, because they aren't getting very many facelifts), as the world is crazy about crossovers right now. Chrysler has two cars left (one is outdated, the other in a category that nobody wants anymore). Fiat tries to live off of the 500, which is losing popularity, Lancia is pretty much dead, Alfa Romeo's grand revival isn't exactly going as planned (although the Stelvio does well of course), Maserati has an outdated sports car, some very expensive sedans and a crossover.

FCA's boss has also been desperately looking for another corporation to buy all of FCA, which doesn't look very good, while he is trying to make all of his brands to go 100% crossover. Good job!

*Both the Chrysler TC and Cadillac Allanté were bad ideas because they were built in Italy and imported to the US, which made them ridiculously expensive. I think the Allanté could have done reasonably well if it was built in the US instead.
