Marchionne Predicts Industry Merger by 2018

May 28, 2015 - 11:28 AM - by

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) CEO Sergio Marchionne is convinced that a large scale merger in the auto industry is coming.

'I am absolutely certain that before 2018 there will be a merger,' said Marchionne, without specifying whether or not it would involve FCA. 'Itís my personal opinion, based on a gut feeling.'

Reportedly, Marchionne sent e-mails to GM in the past seeking a merger with the American automaker. Though he has declined to confirm it as the truth, he did say, 'I write lots of emails; one does not talk about those things this way.'

Marchionne sees the need for merger in the auto industry to help capitalize on economies of scale in order to save money. Automakers all over the world develop the same technologies independently of each other, a costly arrangement that Marchionne would like to see gone.

'In principle, Marchionne is right ó the auto industry develops the same things ten times over,' said Karl-Thomas Neumann, CEO of GMís Opel branch.

Why Wonít My Car Start?

May 05, 2015 - 2:06 PM - by

Without a doubt, every owner dreads the moment when their car wonít start. What should you do? Who should you call? Can you fix it yourself? Hereís a list with ten common reasons why cars donít start up and what you can do about it.

'The first step is to define the no start' said Joe Spadafora, certified instructor at Universal Technical Instituteís Exton, Pennsylvania campus. Spadafora spent the majority of his career in working in the service department of several dealerships and receiving factory training from GM. Heís certified as a Master Technician and certified by Chrysler as a Dodge Viper technician . He also holds certifications from Subaru, Suzuki, Toyota, Lexus and Scion as well, so if thereís something wrong with your car, chances are heís seen it before.

To diagnose the reason your car isnít starting, you need to pay attention to happening when you turn the key. 'Does the engine crank but not actually start or, when you turn the key, does literally nothing happen?' he said. 'In a customerís eyes, the following two options are the same because both create a scenario that results in the vehicleís failure to run.'
