According to the latest issue of Car & Driver mazine Chrysler will be adding a true two-door hardtop ( no post & quarter windows that really go down ). and a convertible to the 300 platform.

I just don't get what all the hoopla is over this dog!! But, apparently they're selling like hotcakes since Chrysler blew the doors off both Ford and GM this past quarter in terms of increased sales.

It's hard to tell the difference between a Ford and a GM product from a short distance. Chrysler is daring to be different. That appears to be a pretty powerful draw. H

I'm convinced one of the reasons people have been buying all those trucks and SUV's is because they want a RWD car but they can't get one.

I have a very steep driveway (as do the neighbors on my side of the street)...mo one in the family has been been able to get up it in the snow with RWD (neither can any of my neighbors). FWD, for what ever reason, climbs right on up most times without even slipping a bit. So, I don't know if I agree with your assessment on that one. Maybe the newer RWD vehicles with traction control, etc. do better. But FWD without traction control seems to work fine.

Probably some truth to that. Add in the need for space for a family that simply isn't available in a "car" any more and there you go!
