"Our dealership hasn't been changed in 25 or 28 years. We know we've got to do something soon, but we won't do it right now. Will Chrysler guarantee me that if I build a new building I will be able to sell more cars? They say it will, but I'm not so sure."
Zanesville, Ohio"If we're able to combine Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge stores under one roof with DaimlerChrysler's Project Alpha plan (the merging of existing dealerships), it's always a possibility we could remodel. That possibility increases as the dealership network becomes available. Other than that, it might be status quo for us. We might just ride things out this year with new product."

Houston"The economic climate says we probably won''t make any renovations. It's just very difficult right now. It's just too cost-prohibitive. Honestly, our design might still be from the early 1960s, but the layout is still efficient. It might not be the look of the future, but sometimes that's enough to allow you to hold off for a bit."

Santa Clara, Calif. "We won't be expanding because we are three years into a new facility. So our infrastructure is set and ready for growth. We've been there and set for a couple of years. Come back and ask that question in three years so I can tell you I need to add another 40,000 square feet."
