At least 12 rejected Chrysler dealers will begin their reinstatement process

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

Chrysler representatives have started to inform closed dealerships that they will soon receive letters of intent to start their reinstatement process, according to a leader of a rejected-dealers group and a dealer lawyer. These reinstatements are a marked contrast to what Chrysler had been saying.

Two weeks ago, Chrysler said that it doesn't plan on reinstating any of the over 400 dealerships that have given notice of their intent to seek arbitration.

So far, 12 dealerships are known to be getting these letters but no one can confirm just how many dealerships will be included in this list. It's also unclear what the process is.

Meanwhile, Chrysler has yet to admit that it is set to begin reinstatements. In an e-mail, the company said, "Nothing new in our network has happened as of today."

Tamara Darvish, a co-leader of the Committee to Restore Dealer Rights, is a known lobbyist in behalf of rejected Chrysler and General Motors Co. dealerships.

She said that she was e-mailed separately by three former Chrysler dealers about these letters. Darvish said that the three dealers (two from Florida and one from Ohio) were told by Chrysler representatives that they will receive letters of intent the next day via Federal Express.
