DaimlerChrysler Might Bring In Chrysler

DaimlerChrysler Malaysia CEO Frank Steinleitner says the company might decide to bring in Chrysler cars into Malaysia next year.

To test the market, they will bring in a few Chrysler models in Q3 2005 to get some feedback from roughly 1000-2000 of existing customers to determine likes, dislikes and prices they are willing to pay.

Possible models could include the Chrysler Jeep, Chrysler Crossfire and the Chrysler 300. Local assembly is a possible depending on how the market reacts.

    I've seen a Chrysler Voyager MPV on road in Subang since I was in secondary school (3-4 years back). I was wondering how did a Chrysler end up in Malaysia.
