Chrysler scraps dealer awards meeting in Mexico
There is the matter of the $4 billion loan from the federal government that kept the doors open at the Auburn Hills, MI automaker. Chrysler already learned that spending money to thank Americans was probably a bad idea. The bigger lesson likely came from insurance giant AIG, who received major backlash for spending $440,000 to pamper top sales executives just days after receiving billions from the government. It's good to see that Chrysler cancelled what sounds like a very fun trip, because the domestic auto industry doesn't need any more negative press.
