We may not know exactly which vehicles Chrysler will still be making by 2009, but we do know the automaker will offer Sirius Satellite Radio through 2017. Chrysler has had plenty of success with its Sirius offerings, so the long-term contract should come as no surprise. The take-rate for the audio technology across the Chrysler product line is a hefty 70%, and Sirius gave the Pentastar first crack at Sirius TV in the company's minivans and SUVs. Let's just hope that Chrysler's deals with interior suppliers don't last well into the next decade as well.

      Competition is a lot tougher these days, not sure if Chrysler will last all that long.

      My H2 has XM and I hate it. Well, not hate it, but I don't think it is as good as Sirius. I actually miss having Sirius in my car. Of course, if the merger ever goes through, this won't matter. That said, it is too bad the buyer has no choice in this.

      Will "Chrysler" even be in production through 2017?

      Chrysler, what about Sirius? I'd say they are way closer to the end of the road than Chrysler.

      Directed at Mercury Mountaineer 06 and YouFaceTheTick:

      I suspect Chrysler will be around in the year 2017 and beyond. In fact, each one of you probably stand a better chance of giving up the ghost long before Chrysler goes under.

      Not looking good for Mercury unfortunately Mercury's last year of production will probably be around 2012.

        In Mercury's case it won't go away because of going out business (Chp 7) but because Ford wants it to go away (no product investment).
