I'm just like you and follow dodge. I will follow dodge to the depths of hell and they can team up with anyone but ford/gm. Both cars were rushed to the market. When they bring back smaller cars again they need to take their time. From the get go both of them left a sour taste in peoples mouths because of teh issues. You need to get the magazine to like the cars first as that's where people get the idea the car is good. The last good car dodge built was over 10 years ago, it was the neon. It did everything you wanted it do do. Since then their small cars have been pretty shit. It doesn't matter how many small cars they end up selling if they all fall apart in 5 years and won't get those customers as return customers

Not to mention, the Wagoneer/Grand Wagoneer are expected to be high-end luxury vehicles with a price tag to match. FCA North America is not doing well in the sales charts. Their YTD sales are down 10% over the first 2 months of 2016. You might think "oh well, with no Dart/200, that makes sense", except that Jeep is down even more than FCA as a whole. The Cherokee, which should be leading the charge in the sales charts (due to its class and price point), is in fact in free-fall. There are several SUVs selling like crazy in North America. They're all made by FCA's competitors. I think FCA made a bad assumption. They assumed that "iconic" would translate to "popular". Everybody knows what a Jeep is, but that doesn't mean they want to own one.

Well, it's better than being down, sure, but that number needs some context. The Chevy Silverado family saw 6.2% growth in the first 2 months. And Ford's F-series saw 10.4% growth. Ford and Chevy already outsold RAM pretty significantly, so each percent of growth translates to significantly more actual units sold for them than for RAM. Not only is RAM still in 3rd place of the 3 pickup truck families, but it is, in reality, losing ground to Ford and Chevy in the pickup truck segment.
But hey, great news, guys! Alfa Romeo saw 379% growth! Of course, that's a jump from 115 units YTD 2016 to 551 YTD 2017 and after the introduction of a second model, but hey, it's something, right? RIGHT?

As a whole everyone is down but jeep still sells the most vehicles for fca while being the most consistent followed by dodge being 20k units behind then ram being 1k behind dodge. Jeep si also down because they have two models that have been killed off too along with dodge/chrysler. Everyone knows jeeps major sales of the year are during the summer, way easier to sell teh wrangler then

I agree with you, and I loved the Neon...but I don't think many people would call that the a good car, let alone "the last good car Dodge made". LoL!

Good car for what it was. It literally ticked all teh boxes it needed to for a economy car of it's time, then srt beefed it up to make a crazy economy car.

should have built Dart, 200 and Cherokee in the same plants, so capacity could be shifted around more; might have saved the cars.
had a dart 1.4T and still think that it was the most characterful mainstream small car I've ever had (have had 3 Mazda3, Hondas, etc.)...
the 200S, also, better (more engaging) than a lot of people give it credit for...

Cherokee would have ate up all the time for building then. The cherokee out sold the dart and 200 combined. Also teh reason they both got dropped was because they didn't make much money and had tons of issues when they first came out, thus giving them a bad rep
