Bad news for Chrysler owners

We tried, and we’ll keep trying, because that’s what we do. But right now, we are 0-1 in our effort to object to anti-consumer terms in the Chrysler bankruptcy.

The bankruptcy judge, Arthur J. Gonzalez, has granted Chrysler’s request to let the company off the hook for future legal claims by people who own defective vehicles. That means that if you have a dangerously defective Chrysler, Dodge or Jeep, you are likely out of luck. Read Chris Jensen’s well-written New York Times piece.

 But since we’re Public Citizen, we don’t give up. We’ll be filing an appeal shortly.
