Cookie Monster, Grover and the Count in Chrysler Pacifica
There are some interesting characters behind the wheel of the Chrysler Pacifica lately. As part of a sponsorship of the PBS show “Sesame Street,” Chrysler is creating a multimedia campaign that pairs Sesame Street muppets and the all-new Chrysler Pacifica minivan. The first four videos feature muppets riding in a Chrysler Pacifica while playing a new game show called “Listen, Drive, Surprise!” The game show tests the characters’ ability to follow directions. Children help explain the vehicle’s features along the way. “’Sesame Street’ has a powerful connection with families and this partnership allows the Chrysler brand to support their work around the world,” said Tim Kuniskis, of FCA North America, in a press release. “As a trusted family [...]
Hi, this is Aaron Young from Runde Ford Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Manchester and I wanted to tell you about this one-time event as we finish 2014. Imagine this: It’s bitterly cold and the subzero wind is whipping at the windows. Instead of having to battle the winter weather, you simply press a button to start your car from the comfort of your home. When you get in your car, the leather seats and steering wheel are warm and toasty. With the brilliant HID lighting and built-in navigation, you easily find your way to your next destination while a concert of music surrounds you from the 9-speaker Alpine stereo. A call comes in and you answer it without removing your hands from the heated leather wrapped steering wheel. It sounds like luxury, and it is in the top of [...]

Fiat exercises option to buy additional 3.3% of Chrysler shares

Purchase brings closer a merger of the two automakers
Fiat today exercised an option to raise its stake in Chrysler by 3.3 percent. The move is part of CEO Sergio Marchionne’s step-by-step purchases intended to lead to full control of Chrysler and the creation of a merged company that would be able to compete better with industry leaders Toyota, General Motors and Volkswagen. Fiat has been exercising options since mid-2012 to buy holdings of about 3.3 percent from the VEBA, a medical-benefits trust for the U.S. carmaker’s retirees. Including today’s purchase, Fiat has exercised three of its six-monthly options, increasing its stake to 68.49 percent. Fiat has said it wants full control of Chrysler, which would give it access to some of Chrysler’s cash flow for investments in new models. Chrysler has become Fiat’s most reliable profit generator as the Italian company struggles to end losses in Europe that totaled 704 million euros ($903 million) in [...]
  What did the mama turkey say to her naughty son???   If your papa could see you now, he’d turn over in his gravy!  
Today we had the pleasure of getting to know a family who recently bought a Chrysler Town & Country van from us. Sharon, Darlene, Alex, Emily and Gavin took a few moments to share their experience with us.  We give you … the Riesselman Family. How did you find Runde Auto Group and this particular vehicle? We found you guys on the internet. Your website was very easy to navigate and we easily found what we wanted. I really like how you can narrow by the year, model and mileage, it makes it really easy to find what you are looking for. Where is the first place you’ll take your new Town & Country van? Darlene: Home to see if it will fit in the garage! Sharon: Yeah. Why did you decide to purchase it [...]
Sean Dailey is one of Runde’s newest employees. Over the past few weeks he has been very busy meeting all of the friendly faces at our Ford-Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep store and helping the great people of, and around, Manchester with their vehicle needs. In the midst of his busy schedule we were able to sneak in a few questions to get to know him bit better. So Sean, what exactly do you do here at Runde’s? I am a general sales associate, I sell cars. How long have you been doing that? Two and a half weeks so far. Are you originally from the Manchester area? No, I was actually born in San Francisco. I joined the military and after moving around for a while, I settled here in Iowa about 19 years ago. Why Iowa? [...]
In the car business you often get a mixture of old school thought vs. new school.   Yesterday, this really seemed really apparent when we asked one of our senior salesmen to help provide us with a customer of his that we could interview for the blog.  His response was: “No.  Actually, I can’t wait ’til that thing (the blog) goes away.”  In the past couple years, social media has become what it is and at Runde’s we have tried to embrace it for the positive.  We run a good business and word of mouth has always been one of the cheapest and best forms of advertising.  So we figure, we’ll interview customers and ask them what they thought of their experience at Runde’s.  It’s been good for Runde Auto Group and we get to discover a little more about our customers — facets of their lives that may not have normally come to the surface during a normal [...]

Chrysler buyers and the American Auto Industry got a shot of adrenalin earlier this week.  Because of the U.S Treasury’s recent move to provide Chrysler Financial with up to $1.5 billion in loan dollars, the lender will now offer 0% financing on select Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge models. Qualified new vehicle buyers can apply for 0% interest for up to 60 months on ’08 and ’09 model-year Jeep Grand Cherokee, Commander, Wrangler, Chrysler Town & Country, 300,  Dodge Grand Caravan, Charger, Magnum, Ram Pickup, Ram HD, and Challenger.

Now our customers, including those with scores in the 620 range, will be able to apply for affordable loans and our dealers [...]
Practicality has been the main characteristic on everyone’s minds at GM, Chrysler, and Ford. Over the past few years, they have been drawing up plans to increase fuel-efficiency, while still allowing enough cargo space for American families, and the amount of ‘stuff’ we all think we need when we travel. The ‘Big 3’ have been pouring their resources into the development of some high-quality family sedans and some new hybrid vehicles. Check out my showcase of a few current models, as well as upcoming releases! Chevrolet Malibu & Malibu Hybrid — CURRENTLY AVAILABLE Malibu–33 mpg & the Malibu Hybrid–34 mpg on the highway _______________________ 2011 Volt 2010 Ford Transit Connect With businesses and delivery services in mind, Ford created the Transit Connect with 143 cubic feet of cargo space, and 24 mpg capacities.   ________ Chrysler 2009 Chrysler Town & Country (AVAILABLE NOW) & 2010 Town & Country EV
With rising gas prices and our depency on foreign oil, most vehicle manufacturing companies are developing new forms of energy for their automobiles. GEM, formerly Global Electric Motors, will be changing it’s name to GreenEcoMobility. They are also going to be very busy this year! Chrysler and GEM are developing a new all-electric car in hope that it will be on the road sometime in 2009. With a name like ‘Peapod’, you can imagine what it looks like. It’s a more modern-looking version of the Smart Car, which originated in Europe and has made it’s way to the United States. They use no gasoline and emit no pollutants. They have not released much information about the life of the batteries yet, but they did say the car will have built-in connectors for the stereo and hands-free calling for iPods and iPhones. GEM is making the seats out of an eco-friendly, recycled mesh material for better air [...]
