Chrysler cutting 30 New Jersey dealerships and 789 nationwide

chrysler051409_optNew Jersey may lose 30 Chrysler dealerships by June 9, according to documents filed in federal court on Thursday by the car maker. That includes dealers from one end of the state to the other, from Walsh Dodge in Jersey City to Burke Brothers in Cape May Court House.

In all, 25 percent of the company's 3200 dealership received notices that their franchises were being revoked as part of Chrysler's restructuring efforts.

"Many of the dealers' sales are too low, with just over 50 percent of dealers accounting for about 90 percent of the company's U.S. sales," according to philly.com.

In a press release the company said it intends to "maintain business with all its dealers through the transition" and to "honor warranty and incentive payments during the period the rejected dealers remain active."

Chrysler said the 789 dealers whose franchises are affected represent only 14 percent of its sales volume.

That stinks. Wyckoff is a great group from Sales to service. I bought my last 2 cars there after being put through hell with a different Bergen County Chrysler dealer who is not on this list. What a shame. Wyckoff was good people!
