They are junk like the Renaults are.
The merger is dead, Nissan stopped it, they saw even more loss of power and what concerns them the most in the arrangement.
Fiat was only flopping around like a dead fish there anyway, the initial deal gave them everything and almost nothing to Renault.
Fiat cannot sell cars in the US; people take one look and say 'cute' then move on. The only thing they have is Chrysler and eventually they will screw it up too. They don't have enough money to move into the future with electric cars and are worried about themselves 10 years into the future. They should be.
