For Chrysler dealers about to lose their franchise agreements, the last days of selling Dodge, Jeep and Chrysler vehicles have been filled with quick sales at deep discounts.
The dealers are also getting sad goodbyes from long-time customers and venting their dismay and anger toward the automaker they worked with for years.
Almost 800 dealers across the country are expected to lose their franchises Tuesday.
Auburn Hills, Mich.-based Chrysler has asked a bankruptcy court for permission to terminate the franchise agreements of about 25 percent of its dealers.
Chrysler needs to cut costs, and claims current sales levels don't justify a network of 3,189 dealers.
