Those 789 Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep dealers that were cut loose by Chrysler as a part of its bankruptcy and restructuring plan have until June 9th (next Tuesday) to part with their remaining inventory.

Because of the dealership contract that they signed, dealers aren't allowed to sell off the cars once the contract expires. And because Chrysler is in bankruptcy protection, it doesn't have to buy the cars back either.

Chrysler has said that it will help the 789 dealers move their inventory to the remaining Chrysler dealerships, but it won't give any guarantees on the amount of money those dealerships will have to pay for the remaining vehicles. And considering the circumstances, the terminated dealers don't exactly have much faith in their parent company right now.

As a result, dealerships are slashing prices. CNN visited Pohanka Chrysler-Dodge in Leesburg, Virginia, where the dealership has slashed prices on some models by as much as 40 percent. A brand new Dodge Nitro, which lists for $29,170 now has a sticker price of just $17,510.

Owner Ray O'Bryhim even says prices may get lower as the June 9th deadline approaches.

When Chrysler's 789 dealers received noticication that their contracts would not be renewed, they had an inventory of roughly 44,000 cars.

help, im all shook up

just purchased a 2002 5.9 4x4 diesel. it has a lift kit the tires on it were 305 70 . two were worn out so i replaced them with 245 75. however when i go over a fair size bump the rear end hops like crazy, really scared my dog. when the big tires were on it didn't do this. i put some weight in the back and it seem to stop it. about 600 lbs. i lessened the weight a bit and it did it again though it took a bigger bump. checked the shoks , they were ok. what can i do to fix this?

What I meant by this was that I wish that all the idiots that caused this lost everything they had like all the Chrysler executives bank accounts, planes, houses and all. But no they get to keep all there stuff but the 40 to 80 thousand people from the 789 dealers don't:thumbsup:
