Chrysler News:Chrysler Says It Won't Sell Pieces of Company
DETROIT -- Chrysler LLC on Wednesday shot down fresh speculation the auto maker is considering selling off pieces of its operations amid increasing concern about its ability to survive.
In a hastily organized conference call, Chrysler President Tom LaSorda said reports the company was in talks about selling its Jeep brand and other key assets are "absolutely false."
Chrysler is "going to be around for a long time," he said. "We are not going under."
Mr. LaSorda said he couldn't say if Chrysler's majority owner, Cerberus Capital Management LP, was considering selling the company as a whole.
It's time to buy back into American Vehicles!
