Fiat to Make Decision Soon on Chrysler Merger


Detroit News - April 23, 2009

A Fiat/Chrysler merg­er deal could bring pos­i­tive changes to Chrysler before the April 30 fed­er­al dead­line, but Fiat is also con­sid­er­ing a deal with GM Europe’s Opel-Vaux­hall unit. Through the Fiat deal, Chrysler would sur­vive and acquire the small cars it needs. Fiat would be able to return to the U.S. mar­ket at min­i­mal cost with a deal­er net­work already in place.
