American Automakers received a tune-up of $17 billion over the last 2 months. But they say they're headed for a deadly crash if they don't get more federal money. GM and Chrysler are cutting jobs and closing plants to survive. Auto workers fear for their livelihood.
Hummers, Saabs, and Saturns could be goners. The PT Cruiser, Aspen and Durango will be history. Can northeast Ohio cities like Parma and Twinsburg do anything to preserve their plants? What good is another federal loan if it only helps short term? We'll talk about the future of the American automakers, Friday morning at 9 on 90.3.
