          We should ban Fiat from selling cars here. Jeep hasn’t been Jeep since Jeep sold Jeep. Chrysler hog tied it and Fiat (definition: mandate – ha-ha) stuck a skewer through it’s heart. Been ruined since the YJ (Yuppie Jeep) We should conglomerate the 2 and call it the Jiat Feep.

    Fun facts:
    Aluminum melts around 660F
    Carbon Steel melts around 2600F

    Don’t waste time getting out of a new car…if it catches fire. Many have aluminum exteriors to reduce weight/ improve mileage.

    That Dodge brush unit looks like a modern rendition of the truck they had on the 1970s television show, “Emergency”.o
