    Via the old standby:
    Top up CEO and all upper management pay. Tell me if I’m wrong on that one?

    Legislation for "Ignition on, lights on" federal regulation

    Lights on for safety folks

    Highly debatable. These days it’s “lights on to blind other drivers.”

    Anyway, I suspect FCA would put any windfalls right into the debt-repayment fund, and whatever is left over into the capital fund (for creating new cars).

    Invest money in quality and dealer service. I had my Jeep in for some issues and I am getting the ''It's normal...'' for an engine vibration and themperature gauge stuck at 1/4...while my Compass loaner (same year and close enough mileage) did not have that concern...

    I don't see Mopar coming back that quick into the Pro Stock category.... but I perdict they might launch a new Pro Stock model once the next generation Challenger debuts to battle the Camaro around the 2020 season.

    Mopar is already huge into the Sportsman category....

    Mopar-powered NHRA Sportsman racer Justin Jerome steered his 1973 Plymouth Duster to a runner-up finish in Stock Eliminator at the NHRA Winternationals. Jerome also captured the Dodge Top Finisher award in Stock Eliminator. Newly introduced for 2017, the Dodge Top Finisher honor awards $500 to the Stock and Super Stock drivers in a Dodge or Plymouth vehicle who advance the farthest during eliminations at each of the 24 NHRA National events.

    But it’s not here yet. Enough stuff has been coming and either delayed or canceled, I’ll believe in new product when it is in the showroom.

    LED running lights are optional on the upper trims of the Durango and Grand Cherokee. And a full suite of active safety features isn't available on every trim level of any FCA vehicle as far as I'm aware. It's restricted to higher trim levels while other brands are even including them as standard on the base models.

    True the SXT model standard has a light piping similar to the Chrysler 200 (UF) rest of the lineup has LEDs

    Yes, that's the truth unfortunately, or it's "I refuse to turn my lights on regardless of conditions". Hence why I'm advocating for auto lights. No switches at all. Once the ignition is on the lights come on and auto dimming/brights etc. It's a pipe dream I know ...

    If they can do it for motorcycles, then it can be done for autos. The last bike I had ('82 Kawasaki) had auto headlights. There was no on/off switch for the headlight. If the engine was running, the headlight was on.

    There are fewer motorcycles, and for them, it really is a safety issue because drivers usually tune them out.

    For cars it makes sense sense... and when you add up all the power requirements, it's an awful lot of gasoline across all the country, too.

    We have daytime running lights. Keep the tail-lights and side lights on while the car is running, too, and that's enough.

    Agree the tail lights and running lights should be on with the DRL's. Far too many drivers around here think their headlights are on when it's only the DRL's.
