I would hope that Chrysler isn't making the transmission
Chrysler teamed up with Mercedes for some of their transmissions. Also the Mercedes trasmissions are in hyudai'* and Kia'* since chrysler owns part of hyundai, and hyundai owns part of kia. Needless to say, Mercedes got the Hyundai designed engine. Scary! But now you will look at Mercedes in a whole new light.
coincidently, since all the mergers and sharing of technology, hyundai has moved into 2nd for consumer satisfaction (behind toyota) for new car purchases. This is based off of the number of complaints within 6 months of buying the car. They were short buy less than 200 complaints of overtaking toyota. After all said and done, 2004 Hyundai will be the new leader in new car purchase satisfactory ratings.
