I need a nickmane for my car?

Question 1
I need a nickmane for my car?...  It is a new PT Cruiser and it is a champaine color, any suggestions would help

1)   STOVE - ken k

2)   neon in disquise.. - Johnny Rotten

3)   Feminine: Chelsea, Lexanda
Masculine: Charles, Peter, Thomas - Emily

4)   The egg - Daniel

5)   L.C.P.O.P. - Little Champaigne Piece Of Poop - DER ALTE FIRZ

6)   Potato
Taco - travis

7)   broken down - mjmik1

8)   boat anchor - Mike


Question 2
Do you think Chrysler Dodge and Jeep are going to survive? why or why not?...  I sell cars for Chrysler and am feeling the recesion pretty good. I would like to know how the general public feel about Chrysler as a company. Please be honest

1)   Being honest, the only Chryslers i would by would be a dodge Viper, Charger or a Challenger. Otherwise, i don't like Chryslers that much. And there not going to make Vipers any more. So that makes it worse. I don't know if there going to survive or not, i would not be surprised if they did not. There being owned by Fiat. - Melvin

2)   I hope so I love chrysler cars & trucks if they don't make it then I will have to buy foreign because chevy and fords are peices of crap - twisted

3)   Unfortunately Dodge, Chrysler , Jeep don't offer cars that people want. The are really a piece of junk. The only place that Dodge has a market is with the elderly & lower income. The only big seller for them is their trucks, and I honestly don't know why that is either - Maggie

4)   They are a hurry up to the past company. They are either broke, bankrupt, and producing boring refrigerator-box designs (Dart, K-Car, etc) or busy spending too much money making too many models of Hot Wheels style cars (Challenger 1 and 2, Superbird, Charger 1 and 2, Viper, 300) that simply don't appeal to the masses.

Jeep is about the most solid of the divisions, an inheritance from AMC (as was most of the technology in Chrysler's highly successful lineup of the 1990s).

I would buy a Dodge Ram Cummins because I think the motor is better than the competition even though the truck is ugly. Other than that they are low-quality, failure-prone, highly-depreciating vehicles that get brought in with 'ooohhs' and 'aahhs' from the automotive press and within two or three years they are blowing blue and being driven by yokels. - calnickel

5)   Jake to be honest, you are a rookie, any good sales person could care less about the make of car they are saleing, IF you had taken any of Chrysler's sales training you would know this. People already dont like dealers because of the " Coked up, BSing, Pushy sales guy at John Q Publics dealership" You need to train and be a true honest sales person and know how to follow up, reference, and network with you customers to get them to give you the leads so you can sale cars.
if you are just sitting on your butt and waiting for customers, you will be in the 85% sales staff that get know where in this business of saling cars - rick b

6)   We love our durango.Exellent transportation. - ClarkL

7)   The major problems with Chrysler right now are: 1.) the mid-sized cars are below average in interiors and reliability compared to the competition, thus pulling down the overall perceived value. 2.) Chrysler has not come out with a new or redesigned car for 2009 or 2010. The competition has new designs and made improvements on what they have. If Chrysler can hold on until the new models come out later in 2010 and 2011 they should be competitive with the other manufacturers. Chrysler's best sellers are the Dodge truck line (terrific new trucks - if you can afford the gas), and Jeeps. - C-Tech


Question 3
the 83 crysler cordoba?...  does any one know how rare these are and what there worth in good shape

1)   they are pretty rare but there are the LS models that are the rarest. they had a full rubber bumper that was the same color as the car. Usually the car was white with blue and red stripes. check it out. - mjmik1

2)   I have no idea what mj is talking about but the 83 Cordoba is not rare and a over weighted boat anchore. BUT if its in really good shape with all the options and a 4bbl 360 in it, could be worth a couple 3 grand, but suspention and body parts for that car will be a bitc_ to find - rick b

3)   That and the mirada body style only ran for 4 years and did not sell exremely well, but do have a following. I had an 81 slant 6 mirada for a while, was cool car. - done wrenching

4)   Rick B is right, they're crap. There are none in good shape, because they weren't in good shape when they left the factory! - Mike


Question 4
Are the Chrysler and Dodge Minivans really as poorly built as people say they are?...  I need a 2010, new, Mini van for work and travel. But every review I've read slams both Chrysler and Dodge as having incredibly poor plastic interiors, antiquated and under powered engines, anwar page body warpage to the point where the rear door don't close because the rear bumper plastic warps. stops short of calling the 2010 a disaster on wheels. True, or False? ....And what is the status of Chrysler today in terms of bankrupsy? Is buying anything Chrysler worth the risk?


They get poor mileage and are cheaply made, if you really need a van try the honda oddessy. It is a great car, lasts a long time (mine is 8 and is doing great), and gets good milage. The quality of honda is amazing, so you really should consider one - Charger

2)   Chrysler makes great mini van's They have out sold any mini van on the market even a Honda. BUT a Chrysler mini van is in the budget category ( except for the fully optioned grand caravan) so it gets beaten up a lot. As for the 2010 I have no idea, but a 08 or 09 would be a good choice too - rick b

3)   The main stream media tends to pile up criticism on the company that is down at the moment (look at Toyota). The 2010 minivans, Dodge Caravan or Chrysler Town and Country are probably the best built Chrysler products. Since the redesign in 2009, They took the best from the old van (very reliable 3.3 and 3.8 V6 engines) improved the transmission, and made the window regulators more reliable. The warranty claims are lower for those vans. The interiors are a matter of taste, take a look and see what you think. The fold away seats are great and it is more versatile than a SUV. The problems that I have seen with these vans are electronics overload with the dual dvd players are radios sometimes malfunctioning (occasionally due to owner damage when the kids stuff playthings into the wrong places) Chrysler is very good at minivans that's why they are the leader. The Honda Odyssey is very good as well, but the price is higher. Take a look at the VW Routan. Stay away from Kia. - C-Tech

4)   I'm going to not give an opinion, just give some information from Consumer Reports.

Chrysler has the lowest rated vehicles in every segment except the minivan and the Ram truck. Every vehicle in the lineup is rated "worse than average," or "much worse than average" in reliability.

The number of Chrysler / Dodge / Jeep vehicles that come into my shop confirms this assessment. - Mike


Question 5
Does anyone know anything about voyager 1?...  thank you for the information!

1)   Yes, I do. - Baub

2)   It was a STARSHIP - Jefferson Starship

3)   It's one of the Space Shuttles, wrong section, try down the hall and to the left
Atlantis is another, and Endevor - rick b

4)   If you're after a Voyager, go for the 2: The problems on the V1 seem to have been fixed on the V2 and the diesel is auto as standard. Don't bother with the V3 - it's supposed to be 36 improvements but it's a squat ugly dog of a frog.

For all the US users, Voyager is the European name for Town & Country. - Mikey
