This sucks bad! My local small town Dodge dealer "Meyer Auto Sales" is owned and serviced by my wife's family. This dealership was started in 1928 by my wife's great grandfather, then ran by her grandfather and then my father in law took over in the early 1960's when his father died of cancer. The dealership got it's notice that they will loose their franchise. This came only a few weeks after my wife's grandmother passed away, she had been the dealerships book keeper untill se was in her 80's. This is not some huge opperation, this is a company where if you needed a car or truck you delt with the owner, not some salesman. When you needed service you delt with my wife's uncle's or her brother's and the bodyshop was run by another uncle and he did most of the painting. This is trully a family opperation. The dealership prided itself in having the "Five Star" award for almost as long as it has been available. These guys are the reason that I switched to Dodge from GM when I bought my first used Cummins in 1997. Saddly only weeks after hearing that they would loose their contract with Dodge, my father in law Lynn Meyer died of sudden heart trouble while at his birthday party on May 23. Days later at the funeral home over 1,300 guests showed up to pay their respects. As we stood in line talking to these guests I was amazed at the hundreds of people who introduced themself as "just customers". I have bought a lot of products over the years but I have never recieved service that was so good that I went to a funeral for one of the owners. These customers knew how different this dealership is. I think that Chrysler has made a huge mistake in their decision to close these small dealerships that could not have been costing them much money. If Chrysler had more dealerships like Meyer Auto Sales it would not be in the trouble they are in. If you are in the Ft.Wayne IN. area give these guys a call. They have a huge wealth of knowedge of all dodge cars and trucks, along with the type of personal service that Chrysler can't take away by pulling their dealership.
