Well well well, looks like the Italian unions are coming home to roost.

Chrysler-Fiat is thumbing their nose at the Italian unions and is building a new model car plant in Serbia instead of Italy due to the endemic problems with union memeber absenteeism and low productivity.

1)FIAT stands for "Fix It Again Tony"

2)There cars are pieces of crap, who'd own one anyway?????
What do I care where they are manufactured? Seems if the Serbs are busy making cars, they'll be less busy starting wars

For those of you that do not remember the Yugo there is an important fact about the car to know.

A Yugo is, simply put, A Fiat 128 built and assembeled in YUGOslavia. No lie.

Nothing like a Fiat made by commies. Who would've thought they could be worse than the original Italian product?

best possible use for a Fiat would involve large amounts of explosives. these where always shit . i would hope Chrysler knows better than touse anything from these POS .

Along the same lines, isn't Volvo in China now, after having left Ford?

(Fiat- is that what you buy it with? Fiat currency? We'll have plenty of that....)

Fiat automobiles are not capable of being built, stored or operated at any temperature below room temperature, they don't even make snow tires for Fiats.

Having had intimate relations with both in the same sentence I have concluded that the planting was the best choice...

FIAT sux, no doubt . . .
