So Chrysler made a big announcement, but not about a new model but a new feature they will be adding. It is a Satellite Television system, now I know what your thinking…cool! But I agree with automobilemag.com in that you wonder what Chrysler is thinking about, its safety features or more reasons to distract us from the safety features?
They say, “While Sirius Backseat TV is a great idea and an answer to the prayers of road tripping parents, I’m a bit concerned with Chrysler’s business strategy. How many gimmicks can they come up with? The new ’08 minivans will add this new toy to a list that also includes Swivel ‘n’ Go and Stow ‘n’ Go seats, the MyGig entertainment system, and a twin DVD system. And don’t forget Chrysler’s other catch phrases and features, including Parksense, Park View, Load ‘n’ Go, Chill Zone glovebox refrigeration, heated and cooled cup holders, liftgate speakers, removable cargo lights, and of course that whole, silly Trail Rated thing. Kudos, guys, for coming up with tons of great car-related ideas. But Jeep Commanders-with or without Sirius Backseat TV-are sitting on lots for months. And no one is too hot and heavy with the recent redesigns of the Chrysler Sebring, the Dodge Avenger, or either of the minivans. Filling an ugly car with lots of toys is like Britney Spears covering her shaved head with a wig. Everyone will still know she’s completely insane. So please, Chrysler, build better cars. Then work on the ‘innovative offerings.’ ”
