This looks like Chrysler's last attempt to put a spanner in MM's plans to enter the US market.

You can see two things:

a) Chrysler seems to be scared of India and its auto industry

b) This is free publicity for M&M, this lawsuit will only increase MM's brand awareness in the US market. Bad publicity is sometimes good publicity.

If Chrysler has a problem with a grille, wonder how they cope up with the chinese auto industry?

Chrysler lauched a legal battle with Hummer when the civilian versions was launched in the US. Looks like they are pretty sensitive about the grille. I am going to sue anyone who has front teeth that look like mine.

The copy cats in China take the cake !!! How come no one sues them ?

The Chrysler story is at best a lame attempt to get "alimony" from M&M aimed to basically make their ride rough into international market....



Cheers

And I will sue anyone who has a moustache like mine

Looks like the downturn in their corporate performance is really affecting the management at Chrysler
