              Suzanne        Syosset   New York   United   Honorable Judge Arthur Gonzales,
              Tsiatis                             States
                                                           It has been my privilege to “partner” with Bob Frederick and the Frederick CDJ Dealership in
                                                           Boardman, Ohio for the “ultimate” car buying experience. By now I am sure you have seen the
                                                           current Chrysler advertising “We Bring You”…let me share what Bob Frederick brings to the table.
                                                           Frederick builds long term brand relationships FOR Chrysler through exceptional attention to quality,
                                                           detail and service. In terms of customer satisfaction, Bob Frederick holds the title for the most
                                                           satisfied Dodge Challenger customers nationwide! To back that statement up, just review the
                                                           locations of each and every signature on this petition! Bob Frederick has sold the most 2008/2009
                                                           Dodge Challengers in the USA at his dealership alone! There is a reason for this.

                                                           I’m a 46 year old woman from Long Island New York that comes from a MOPAR family. I have
                                                           followed the new Dodge Challenger from it’s concept in 2006 and eagerly anticipated purchasing my
                                                           dream car as soon as I was able to place an order back in January of 2008. My dreams of
                                                           purchasing my dream car locally, here on Long Island, turned into a nightmare. The price gouging
                                                           10k-30k over sticker, little, if any, knowledge of the Dodge Challenger, and lack of respect to me as
                                                           not only a woman, but as a consumer of a high performance vehicle nearly cost Chrysler my
                                                           business. Then I found Bob Frederick and Frederick CJD.

                                                           From coast to coast, through written praise or by word of mouth, Bob Frederick is known and
                                                           respected for his passion, enthusiasm and knowledge for Chrysler products. If Chrysler closes down
                                                           Frederick CJD in Boardman Ohio, they might as well just shut down Chrysler Jeep Dodge period.
                                                           Because of the “dirty sales” practices at my local dealerships (not on the list by the way), I went out
                                                           of state with Bob. I am not only embarrassed at how my local dealerships conduct their businesses,
                                                           but ashamed and appalled. At first, just one man shared his phenomenal experience working with
                                                           Bob at Fredericks CJD, via the internet, I might add. No problem, question or amount of time was
                                                           too big or too small for Bob to get back to his customers at any time of day or into the late hours of
                                                           the night. To hear Bob's friendly voice was always welcomed and his knowledge, fairness and
                                                           commitment to Chrysler was better than gold. I too, found him to be a man of integrity who leads
                                                           his dealership through example, and passed his name on to many others. Well, what one man
                                                           started has amassed into hundreds of not only high performance MOPAR enthusiasts purchasing
                                                           from Bob Frederick, but into a thousand or more who know of him, deal with him, based on his
                                                           credentials and reputation as one of, if not THE leading man to deal with if you are purchasing the
                                                           Dodge Challenger, Dodge Charger or any Chrysler Dodge Jeep product for that matter.

                                                           His dealership should be on record for having the most satisfied Challenger and loyal customers who
                                                           can not begin to state how much Chrysler will lose if his dealership is terminated. Isn't it amazing at
                                                           just how one person purchasing from Bob could have an effect on so many others, that they too
                                                           have spread Bob's reputation as the GO TO man for Chrysler?? Isn't it also amazing that so many of
                                                           Bob's customers and following will refuse to purchase any other Chrysler products and go to the
                                                           competitor? It never fails to amaze me how it all just comes down to the numbers in the end.

                                                                    Chrysler name and values high, especially in these turbulent times, and his dealership is on the

                                                                    to for them as he has in the past, what he exemplifies in the present and where he will help take

                                                                    his dealership. I hope that Chrysler realizes the powers of the written word and spoken word.

                                                                when Bobby entered the picture full time, fresh out of college. The move was a success, and a slew

              James Ramm       Boardman     Ohio    United   Dear Judge Gonzalez,
                                                    States   I am writing to implore you to reverse the decision to close Frederick CJD. I have known the
                                                             Frederick family on a personal level for many years and also professionally. We have always
                                                             purchased our cars (numerous)from Frederick CJD with total confidence in their knowledge, service
                                                             and honesty. The decision by Chrysler to close this dealership has to have been a mistake. Their
                                                             performance for almost 50 years has been without reproach.
                                                             Frederick Chrysler /Jeep/ Dodge should NOT be on the list of closures.
                                                             Thank you

              Armeda           Boardman     Ohio    United   I think it is another example of industry flexing their muscles and looking out only for themselves.
              Maravola                              States   This cannot be allowed and I sincerely hope someone will be able to help Fredericks stay in
                                                             business. This area needs dealers of their quality.

              Nicloe Cassidy   Lordstown    Ohio    United   Judge Gonzalez,
                                                    States   I really think it is a terrible thing to be closing Frederick CJD. At a time when businesses are closing
                                                             all around us to be closing a business that is doning great, in a good location and has a everything
                                                             going for them to be bigger and better.

              Kathy            Getchey      Ohio    United   Judge Gonzalez: We have been regular customer's of Frederick dealerships for the past twenty
                                                    States   years. My husband recently purchased his third Jeep Grand Cherokee from Bob's CJD dealership.
                                                             The sales and service employess, as well as Bob, have always provided five star service to their
                                                             customers. To even consider forcing this dealership to close is insane. Bob has not only been an
                                                             owner but he is truly a Mopar enthusiest who believes in Chrysler products. He has met all the
                                                             requirements to remain open which leads me to believe that he is being treated unfairly in being
                                                             closed by Chrysler. Please listen to his case for remaining open. I'm sure you will agree in your

              Cari J.          Boardman     Ohio    United   Dear Judge Gonzalez,
              Croutch                               States
                                                             Within the last 3 months I have purchased a new Charger and a new Jeep from Frederick CJD. I did
                                                             this even in the face of looming disaster in the American auto industry. I did this because I have
                                                             faith in people like those associated with Frederick Dodge and their values, honesty and the loyality
                                                             they inspire in their customers. These 2 vehicles make the 11th and 12th that I have purchased for
                                                             personal use over the years from this dealership. In fact, the very first new car I ever purchased
                                                             was from them. When Bob Sr. saw me picking up my Charger last month he told me he
                                                             remembered how excited I was to get that "first" convertable. WOW...that was over 20 years ago. I
                                                             could hardly remember that day but he did, talk about inspiring customer loyality and representing
                                                             the brand...

                                                             When the "list" became inevitable and unfortunately a reality for those dealerships that cost
                                                             Chrysler money or haven't performed up to standard, I felt badly but understand that cuts are
                                                             needed. It never occured to me that Frederick CJD would even be a consideration to be placed on

                                                            I am writing you today in reference to the petition brought to your court concerning the closing of

                                                            year after year has been the great service I received from three particular dealers. (To my surprise
                                                            and horror, these three dealers are on the list to be cut off from Chrysler).

                                                            beyond the call. I have seen Sutton family to go out of their way to get old and new customers back

                                                             During the year 2008 I got to know the third dealer, Frederick Chrysler Jeep Dodge (Dealer

                                                             Chrysler needs. From answering questions about the product (at all hours of the day and night) to
                                                             getting the car of their dreams and service after sale, the Frederick’s have been doing it for over a
                                                             generation. The Fredericks have been one of Chrysler’s biggest “cheerleaders”, at public car events
                                                             and on the internet,Frederick Chrysler has been doing what it takes to get customers from all over
                                                             America to try and buy Chrysler products (Their dealership according to many sources is in the top
                                                             25% of the Chyrsler Dealer base in sales).

                                                             In closing they are nearly 800 dealers that Chrysler LLC wants to cut off. Some of that number may
                                                             be justified but,this looks like a “knee jerk reaction” from Chrysler LLC to cut dealers to say they are
                                                             cutting cost. There is no reason for the above three to be cut off (The dealers did not make
                                                             corporate decisions that put the company in bankruptcy). These three family owned businesses in
                                                             their own way, in their market niche,they showcase what company founder Walter P. Chrysler

                                                             service levels that you would expect from higher price cars. This what Chrysler now more then ever
                                                             needs: a strong dealer base showcasing the product and telling customers that a strong New
                                                             Chrysler is on the way with a allot of innovative products around the corner.

                                                             If this travesty of justice goes through, Chrysler may be cutting cost now,but in the future they
                                                             have lost many loyal customers. These customers (like myself) and these fine dealers mention

                                                             I and the many people that do not have voice in the bankruptcy- the loyal Chrysler owners,thank

              DR. MARK R.     TYLER        Texas      United   Bob Frederick has been the Dodge representative for their blog and has answered all the questions

                                                               While I certainly understand the need to streamline operations, and that every dealership on the list
                                                               is facing a painful future, there would appear to be no rational reason to take away the Frederick
                                                               franchise. I surmise looking at raw numbers may have been a criterion, yet I also suppose I would
                                                               be naive to this that personal friendships weren't involved. All I can tell you is the Fredericks are
                                                               beyond wonderful people to deal with, they are simply wonderful people. As a young man in law

                                                               paying my own way through. Bob Frederick helped me out when other dealers wouldn't. How did
                                                               that pay off? Well, 14 cars later, all from Frederick, I would say it was a good return on investment.

                                                               Even after I moved to Cleveland, I continued to buy and have my cars serviced there passing quite

              Carlos Lopez   Davie        Florida   United   It is dealers like Bob frederick's that kept dodge in business in the first place. In handling the order
                                                    States   for my 09 Challenger Bob displayed the utmost professionalism… he did not try to gouge me with
                                                             price and he always kept me informed about the status of my order. Bob Frederick's followed
                                                             through with every question I had even after the car was delivered.. this is even more impressive
                                                             since I live in Davie, FL and you dealership is over 1200 miles away. None of the local dealers here
                                                             can hold a candle to your service.

                                                             Please understand what I am saying here, even though there were hundreds, if not a thousand
                                                             Dealers closer to me. I chose to go with Bob Frederick's dealership because they treated me with
                                                             respect and honesty. The saying goes money talks, well my money went 1200 miles away because
                                                             they were only Dodge dealer that earned my business. I can honestly say that without Bob's
                                                             dealership I would NOT have bought my dodge car last year.

                                                             Bob Frederick's is the model for dealerships that the new Chrysler needs. He has gone beyond the
                                                             norm to get Dodge Chrysler to listen to its customers and to make changes to its product line that is
                                                             more in line with what we the consumers want.

                                                             How many other dealers have you heard about that the public is actually requesting that they NOT
                                                             be closed. I would be shocked if it is more than a handful.

                                                             I want the new Chrysler to succeed, but unfortunately if they do not realize the value of a dealer
                                                             like Bob Frederick's then they are destined for failure. I for one will not buy a FIAT, Chrysler, Jeep or
                                                             Dodge product if Bob's dealership is closed.

              Greg Miller    Diamond Bar      California   United   I view this decision of closing Bob Frederick CJD as just another attack on America. This simply

                                                          States   unsuccessfully to buy a 08 Challenger from dealers in my area. I experience the horror story,
                                                                   identical to so many others, uneducated salesman, price gouging, lies, and even an attempt to keep

                                                                   seeing some blog messages, I broke down and called Bob. He was a straight shooter, always
                                                                   knowledgeable and true to his word.

                                                                   I have a deposit on a Challenger with Bob. If it's not from Bob, I guess I won't be getting one. I will
                                                                   not buy from the dealers that Chrysler is allowing to remain open in my local area. These are the
                                                                   dealers that contributed to why Chrysler is in bankruptcy.

                                                                   Bob, and dealers like him, are what Chrysler should be showcasing as part of their new beginning.
                                                                   You should be championing his dealership as an example; you certainly could fill a stadium of Bob's

                                                                   Chrysler, you really need to re-look at your decision making process! Keep Bob open, please!

              Tommy Wall     Marietta      Georgia      United   The fact that chrysler has put Fredericks on the list of dealers to close shows their criteria is flawed.
                                                        States   How could a company have a dealer that has performed in the top % of all dealers, be awared elite

                                                               that you will see that Bob Frederick is something special in the car dealership world. I can almost

                                                               people would jump at the chance to buy another Chrysler vehicle as long as they were buying fom

                                                               has been nothing short of miraculous. I have purchased many vehicles in my time and have to state
                                                               that I have never been as pleased with any dealer like I have been with Bob. He stands second to
                                                               none. The last statement applies to all manufacturers as I have had vehicles from Dodge, Ford,
                                                               Chevrolet, and Toyota. Closing this deaalership would be an attrosity and a serious miscarriage of
                                                               justice. Thank you for your time and attention to this matter

                                                      States   genuine enthusiasts that have single handedly put the word integrity back into the automobile

                                                             It's rare that a new auto purchase is regarded as a "pleasant experience". I can honestly say that

                                                             exhibited by Bob and his staff was exemplary! There are SO MANY dealerships that DESERVE the

                                                             the "local dealerships". Yet Frederick CJD is on the list to be closed while the "liars and thieves" go

                                                             Frederick, doesn't that speak volumes about how differently I was treated by these folks?

                                                             away). We were ready to go to "great lengths" to continue our support of Chrysler products, due in

                                                             BUT rest assured - if there's no Frederick CJD to do business with, I'll NEVER buy another Chrysler

                                                             Fredericks CJD (dealer code 56617).

                                                             I realize that Chrysler as a company has to reduce the number of dealerships it supports, and that
                                                             the Fredericks’ dealership is a logical candidate for geographical reasons. However Fredericks CJD is
                                                             a special case that should be re-examined.

                                                             Bob Frederick is probably the most visible spokesperson for Chrysler as a whole, and is probably
                                                             more well-known to the public than the people this letter is reaching. To many he is literally the
                                                             ‘face’ of Dodge, through his Red Letter Dodge blog posts and his participation on many Dodge

                                                             In addition, I (and many others) believe he is directly or indirectly responsible for more Dodge sales
                                                             than any other person in North America today. From what I understand, Fredericks CJD is one of the

                                                             When I was unable to find the exact mix of options I was looking for in a Challenger R/T this winter,
                                                             Bob was able to get a factory ordered car delivered in record time. While I had talked to local
                                                             dealers about ordering a car from the factory, none of them seemed willing to pursue this option.
                                                             Most of the sales people I talked to wanted me to ‘settle’ for a car they already had on the lot.
                                                             While this is understandable from their viewpoint, it was not what I wanted. I’ve been waiting
                                                             30-plus years to buy a Hemi Challenger, and I was not going to settle for anything less than 100%

                                                             After seeing the reviews Bob and his dealership received for customer service, I contacted him, and
                                                             within 10 weeks the exact car I wanted arrived at his lot. I personally flew from Atlanta, GA to OH
                                                             to pick the car up and drive it back, a trip which Bob helped out with in many ways. While I was
                                                             there, I met another buyer who had flown out from Boston to do the same. As I mentioned, his
                                                             reputation for quality customer service is nation-wide.

                                                             I paid MSRP (minus EPP) for my car and financed it though Chrysler Financial and quite frankly, I
                                                             feel like I got a better deal on this car than on any new car I’ve ever purchased.

                                                             It’s my firm belief that Chrysler should be using Frederick CJD as a model of what it wants its
                                                             dealerships to be. That a small, family owned dealership in OH is the most well known CJD dealer in
                                                             the country is remarkable. Rather than closing down this dealership, Chrysler should be begging
                                                             Bob and his coworkers to show other dealers how to achieve this same level of customer support
                                                             and satisfaction.

                                                             In closing I’d just like to reiterate just how lucky Chrysler has been to have a dealership like
                                                             Fredericks CJD associated with them. I believe it would be extremely short sighted of Chrysler to
                                                             terminate this relationship with a dealer that actually lives up to Chryslers’ stated goals of
