Pre-owned Chrysler, Jeep(R) and Dodge Brands to be Marketed by Internet Giant - On-line hub to provide 12 million* monthly visitors with Chrysler's Brand Spankin' Used(R) U.S. Certified Pre-Owned selection

AUBURN HILLS, Mich., June 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Chrysler LLC today announced
a partnership with eBay to list their U.S. Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge Certified
Pre-Owned (CPO) inventory on the new eBay Motors' Certified Pre-Owned
Showroom. The eBay Motors' CPO Showroom is a new online hub, designed to house
a franchised dealer's certified used-vehicle inventory. It will now provide
its 12 million* monthly unique visitors with a selection of over 15,000
late-model, low-mileage, fully inspected and reconditioned used Chrysler, Jeep
and Dodge vehicles complete with factory-backed warranties, a free CARFAX
vehicle history report, road-side assistance, rental car allowances and more.

The Chrysler LLC Certified Pre-Owned Program, marketed as Brand Spankin'
Used, is the industry's only factory-certified pre-owned program to have set
new sales records every year since its inception in 2002. In 2007, Chrysler
LLC reported the sale of over 122,000 CPO units** through their franchised
dealerships across the country, an increase of 5 percent over 2006. May 2008
sales are up 13 percent, with overall 2008 year to date sales up 8 percent.
Over the years, Chrysler's CPO brand has and will continue to partner with
third-party search engines such as Cars.com and AutoTrader.com in an effort to
help their dealers promote the sale of Certified Pre-Owned units.

"In today's economy, consumers are more Internet savvy and shop for
quality products online," said Lisa Way, Chrysler Senior Manager, Certified
Pre-Owned Vehicles. "We feel that this new partnership with eBay Motors will
help our CPO dealers expose the company's quality used cars and trucks to
millions of eBay Motors users."

The new eBay Motors CPO Showroom will enable consumers to view certified
pre-owned inventory from Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge dealers within their local
area via a classified listings format. A participating dealers' CPO inventory
automatically uploads utilizing OEM-customized templates and dealers interact
with customers via existing customer relationship management (CRM) systems.
Consumers, in turn, can communicate with dealers directly and through the eBay
Motors platform.

The CPO Showroom is accessible from the eBay Motors homepage as well as at
eBay Motors - Certified Pre-Owned . Chrysler LLC also has its own Certified
Pre-Owned Web site at Home | Brand Spankin' Used - Chrysler Five Star Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles .


About Chrysler LLC and its "Brand Spankin' Used" Certified Pre-Owned
Program

Marketed as "Brand Spankin' Used(R)," Chrysler Certified Pre-Owned
Vehicles are sold only through Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge dealerships that have
had a comprehensive validation of the dealership's facilities, operational
processes, salesperson and technician training accreditation before they are
authorized to sell Chrysler Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles.

For a vehicle to be certified under Chrysler's used-vehicle program, it
must be a 2003 through 2008 model pre-owned vehicle with less than 65,000
miles and pass a stringent 125-point mechanical, safety and condition standard
inspection. Chrysler CPO vehicles are backed by an eight-year/80,000-mile
powertrain limited warranty, 24-hour, 365-day full roadside assistance with a
$35 per day rental car allowance and a three-month or 3,000-mile Maximum Care
warranty that is additive to any remaining 3 year / 36,000 mile comprehensive
new vehicle warranty.
