Congratulations on your new Chrysler!

The first few cars from the Chrylser-Fiat alliance could hit American roads and Chrysler dealerships early in 2010. Mark Phelan over at the Freep says Fiat is eager to test America’s appetite for its stylish little 500 minicar. Phelan says we can expect to see limited numbers of this pint-sized roasdster on American highwqays early next year, but the flood of small, fuel-efficient models Chrysler needs will not arrive before mid-2011.
