Now that Chrysler has shed itself of 789 dealerships, many of which were close to existing other-brand dealers, the company is asking over 500 dealers who do not sell all three brands to sign up for the missing lines (according to an Automotive News article by Donna Harris).

The tough new contract would:

* require dealers to waive their rights to protest competitors being set up nearby;

* make the dealerships exclusively Chrysler-Dodge & Jeep for a full 30 years

* give Chrysler first dibs on buying or leasing the property if the dealer wants to get out of the business

* force dealers to buy new vehicles
, parts, and tools from “rejected dealers”

* require physical plant upgrades to meet current image standards
