Sundays for church/oil changes?

Fresh from an emotional make meeting with Chrysler Group dealers a few hours earlier, Mopar Brand chief Pietro Gorlier had something else on his mind: even more extended service hours for dealerships.

“We've asked our dealers to open on Saturdays for service, and about three quarters of them are. So now we're pushing them about opening on Sundays too,” Gorlier said. “Independents are open on Sundays, so why shouldn't our dealers be grabbing that business, too?”

There's no official word on how Chrysler dealers may feel about giving up their “day of rest” for an opportunity to do some extra oil changes.
