-- In a blog on their website today a Hartford CT Dodge dealer question whether articles bemoaning the lack of availability of Automatic transmission Dodge Darts is just the presses way of bashing Detroit some more?
A. J. Maida, the Director of Digital marketing at the New Britain based Papa's Chrysler Dodge jeep states that "I was reading an article that said that the Dodge Dart isn’t selling as well as it could be because of the lack of 6 speed Automatic Transmissions. This inspired me to take a walk around the lot here. It seems that we have 7 of them available so I’m not really sure what the reporter was trying to say. Maybe it is just more Detroit bashing and since he can’t find fault with the vehicle he had to find something else. Maida did state that since Papa's is the #1 volume Chrysler Dodge and Jeep dealer in CT maybe they just have more? It makes us wonder too, could it be that after years of bashing Detroit and now that the Quality of vehicles from Chrysler, Ford and GM is equal to anyones is the press just so used to "Detroit Bashing" as he calls it that they have to get nit-picky?
