Videos: Bread and Butter Minivans from DCX

Above is the introductory video to the unveil of the new minivans from Daimler Chrysler group, or officially known as “Bread and Butter” vehicles. My first initial impressions is that Chrysler seems to be heading the right direction while Dodge isn’t. Both of the minivans sport an appearance that looks good when in action, but somehow, it just doesn’t appeal to me when they’re static. And from the side, it looks a bit like the Mazda MPV.

First Look at the DCX “Mini”-Vans

Unfortunately, Daimler Chrysler could not put wraps on its upcoming minivan, which was said to have a more distinct and sportier look. Um… scratch that. The minivans you see here seems like official images that were sent to me by a CNS reader. You may notice that many websites have already been asked to remove the picture per request by DCX, hopefully that won’t happen here.

As you can see from the images, the new design isn’t particularly that great and has an extremely boxy look to shape. The lines don’t flow like the new Honda Odyssey or the Toyota Sienna. Hopefully the interior will inspire us more. Come on, Chrysler, even the Koreans got it right the first time.

Daimler Chrysler Recalls Over 68,000 New Vehicles

Daimler Chrysler group announced that it will recall over 68,000 of its new vehicles due to a problem with the braking system as well as a problem with the windshield defroster. Among these vehicles, they will include the new Dodge Nitro, the Jeep Compass, Chrysler Sebring, Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, Dodge Magnum, Dodge Caliber, Jeep Commander, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Jeep Liberty.

A problem with the brake system could lead to cause drivers to lose control of the car. Among some 62,000 vehicles from the 2007 models affected, only 11 models were reported. However, a notice to all registered owners will be sent out in January. Luckily, no accidents or injuries have been reported so far.

Video: Chrysler Sebring Convertible

You like the new Sebring Convertible? Well, how about a video to see it in action! The video highlights the many features of the Sebring. I don’t know why, but the Sebring actually looks better from the front without the roof, but it has the ugliest butt and rear-end I’ve ever seen. No offense, but the cover looked like it was about to fall off in the video, but I guess that can be said with all the hard-top convertibles.

Anyways, enjoy the vid. 😛

Wallpaper: Let Your Top Down with the Chrysler Sebring Convertible

Wahoo. Here are the wallpapers for the new 2008 Chrysler Sebring Convertible, which we saw earlier today. Continue reading for the full press release. I’m too lazy to summarize details, but you can find all the information you need in the press release. Basically it’s just a convertible version of the Chrysler Sebring. I’m not a big fan of the new Sebrings but overall, I think the design is fairly okay on the inside. There’s more work to be done about the outside.

Videos: Chrysler “Replaced” Commercials

It looks like the Chrysler group has been introducing its series of “Replaced” commercials, in which a rival car is replaced by vehicles from Chrysler for comparison. It’s funny because all the vehicles replaced in these commercials are Japanese brands. Some example vehicles include the Toyota Avalon, and the Nissan Pathfinder.

Anyways, enjoy the videos by continuing reading this post. The first video shows a Toyota Avalon being replaced by the 300, the second features a Toyota Sienna minivan replaced by the Dodge Grand Caravan, and the final video shows a Nissan Pathfinder being replaced by the Jeep Commander.

If it was me, I would never choose a Chrysler over the competing cars. They have bad sense of build quality and such, but that’s just my opinions, so don’t be hating. My mom used to own a Chrysler so…
