Default GM and Daimler-Chrysler teaming up

Sounds like GM and Chrysler have teamed up to design a hybrid engine to compete with the Asian market. Apparently with all the technology the Asian automobile manufacturer'* have is going to require GM & DC to team up and come up with something to compete.
This could be interesting.

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.

Mercedes' general reliability has gone so far downhill lately that it'* not funny. They're at the bottom of the barrel pretty much.

Hyundais has made some very solid, good cars within the past little while. They're yet to be proven in terms of longevity, but hey, if you plan to lease one, it'll last you likely without problems. Kia too.

I don't mind chryslers, I just hate working on them. Of all the car manufacturers, they seem to have the most oddball way of doing things.
