Well, the good news for Cruiser-lovers is that Fiat has decided to give it a "stay of execution" and let it hang around for one more model year until they can get some of their own cars ready for the US market. There will be a 2010 model!
That was in the news today!

Good news! Glad to hear that the PT has been given a stay. Now, if the engineers are smart they will go back and review consumer nega5tive feedback notes and make a good, honest effort to fix things. The most important would seem to be gas mileage. Surely Fiat has a European 4 cylinder that could be incorporated. The one thing they need to guard against as far as the Ameiican market is concerned is performance. Our Interstate and Freeway systems demand a vehicle that can get up to speed and merge with much larger traffic very quickly. My 2005 GT Turbo with automatic does that very well but gas mileage sucks. Also, they need to get rid of the super-expensive 17" tires and rims. America is moving toward smaller, very fuel efficient automobiles. Here's Chrysler's chance to be a leader!
