AddNissan selects plant for building subcompact Chryslers

As we told you last January, Nissan is going to build a small Versa-based car for Chrysler. We now find news that production is set to start in early 2009 at Nissan's Aguascalientes assembly plant in central Mexico, the same plant where all the North American Versas are built. However, this Nissan/Chrsler model will only be sold in Brazil, where it'll be called the Dodge Trazo. Another Nissan plant in Mexico, in Cuernavaca, produces the Versas that are exported to other countries, including Euro

The two trucks will, however, share platforms, the Ram's new coil-sprung rear suspension,

7Chrysler won't turn a profit in 2008, but still on track to achieve goals

Despite the fact that the beleaguered automaker has not yet turned a profit since its unceremonious departure from Daimler to Cerberus, Chrysler CEO Bob Nardelli says that the company is still on track. "Through the first quarter we are still on plan relative to the pro forma and the targets we established for 2008, in spite of some of the economic winds that are hitting us," he says. In order to turn last year's $1.6 billion loss into positive cash flow, Chrysler will be relying heavily on join
