Hey Mike, yeah I drove by Lynwwod Dodge on the way to Costco yesterday and wondered why all the cars had disappeared. They were the ones as you remember who wanted to sell a Black SRT8 for a little over MSRP. Never saw that sucker move and now it certainly has.

Do you think it was from poor sales and they closed up or did Chrysler close them

Geeee.....I wonder if "Market Pricing" played a part (if even just a small one) in some of the dealerships going away......

Were these places strictly Dodge dealers or Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep? If they were just Dodge dealers, I wouldn't worry about it too much. Chrysler said several months ago that they were going to consolidate dealerships to handle either Chrysler and Dodge or all three brands. I know one place in San Antonio, Gunn Dodge, suddenly closed up shop and another down the street a ways that had been Mission Chrysler/Jeep has now become Mission Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep.

Around here I would say it is 50/50 if they cover all 3 or just 2. Any new ones have been all 3. Also the bigger ones that had only sold 2 now have all 3. With alot of th3m going for 4 with KIA.

The one in my hometown closed, but they first opened in 2004 and I never thought for a second that they would stay in business to begin with. The town was barely large enough to justify a GM and Ford dealership, and I doubt that having that fancy new building built was really practical when the other dealerships had much smaller, more practical sizes for years and did fine with what they had.
