It’s no surprise that Chrysler LLC is running out of cash very quickly. For that reason, the automaker is cutting back spending money on the upcoming 2009 Detroit Auto Show next month. It’s been reported that Chrysler has asked its local independent dealers to help out with some of the cost, according to the Detroit Free Press.
Chrysler officials have been asking local dealers for help ever since Nissan said it was pulling out of Detroit to save money. Nissan dealers in Detroit recently said that they will be taking over the display that was abandoned by the company earlier last month.
A Chrysler spokesman declined to comment on exactly how much money the automaker will be spending at the show or how much dealers have contributed so far.
