    Nearly a third of retirees are playing chicken with one of the steepest tax penalties out there — and they are running out of time. IRS rules on so-called required minimum distributions generally kick in once you reach age 70½. For 401(k)s and other defined contribution plans, it's either when you turn 70½. or you retire, whichever is later. If you've inherited an IRA, you might also be subject to RMDs, even if your own retirement is years away. How much you need to take is usually based on the account balance at the end of the previous year, and...

    CASSINO, Nov 25 — President-elect Donald Trump’s critical stance toward free trade could affect Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV’s business in North America, according to the Italian automaker’s chief executive officer Sergio Marchionne. Trump’s election “certainly is a game changer, mainly because I think that there are a number of conditions in the US which are not yet spelled out,” Marchionne told Bloomberg Television at an Alfa Romeo plant in Cassino, Italy. Statements Trump has made about trade are “a big issue” because of the North American Free Trade Agreement’s impact on Fiat’s operations in the US, Mexico and Canada. Trump...

    Shares of Fiat Chrysler are down more than 4% in pre-market trading today as investors react to a possible emission scandal relating to the company's vehicles in Germany... in over the counter markets in the US following a report from a German Newspaper that the company could be banned from vehicles in the country if it is found disregarding strict emission standards. German paper Bild said in a story on Saturday that multiple tests from the German motor transport authority KBA have shown that several Fiat Chrysler's models had exhaust treatment systems that were switching off automatically after running for...

    So my Durango with the 4.7 that wouldn't start has a broken timing chain on the right cam. It only has 140k and I have had 318/360 trucks that went well over 300k before they had any problems; and I have NEVER had a timing chain break during normal operations. I have had Chryslers most of my life and the worst thing I had was a spun bearing on a one ton van (at 350k). Does anybody know if this motor has a reputation for weak timing chains? I know they have gasket and EGR problems.

    DETROIT -- Fiat Chrysler must offer to buy back from customers hundreds of thousands of Ram pickup trucks and other vehicles -- the biggest such action in U.S. history -- as part of a costly deal with safety regulators to settle legal problems in about two dozen recalls. The Italian-American automaker also faces a record civil fine of up to $105 million. In addition, owners of more than a million older Jeeps with vulnerable rear-mounted gas tanks will be able to trade them in or be paid by Chrysler to have the vehicles repaired. ~SNIP~ Vehicles eligible for buy-back offer...

    It was a milestone month for FCA. For the first time ever, Chrysler has outsold Ford in US retail sales, reports Reuters. Retail sales refers to only cars sold directly to consumers, not counting sales of fleet vehicles to corporate customers. Including fleet sales, Ford moved 223,666 cars and Fiat Chrysler group sold 186,864. General Motors, meanwhile, saw sales slip slightly year over year and sold 265,825 cars. For the industry as a whole, it was another good month as car sales continue to go up. 2015 is expected to see even more growth in car sales, as the market...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton holds a dubious record: she’s gone longer than any presidential candidate in modern history without appearing on a national television news network or conducting a sit down interview with national media. Clinton, the likely Democratic presidential nominee, announced she would run for president via a recorded two-minute video message on Twitter Sunday April 12th. Following the announcement, Clinton dashed off to Iowa in her “Scooby” van without giving any time to the national press, and very little time – if any – to local reporters.

    Dodge is experiencing the cliché “too much of a good thing,” and has stopped production of its 707 horsepower halo cars, the Challenger SRT Hellcat and Charger SRT Hellcat, to allow the Brampton, Ontario plant to catch up on existing orders. The official statement released by FCA U.S. says, “Due to unprecedented demand for the 2015 Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcats, we are temporarily restricting orders while we validate current orders that are in the system." While there's been no official word from the automaker regarding when it will resume selling the SRTs, some reports say it could be...

    Muscle cars are all about the numbers, and Dodge has just issued a triple-digit warning to the rest of the ponycar herd. Packing 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, the supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V-8 “Hellcat” engine is the very stuff Saturday night legends are made of. But don’t take our word for it—watch Dodge brand boss Tim Kuniskis set the record straight in the exclusive video below. Installed in the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, this wild engine has the loftiest power figure of any V-8 engine in Chrysler history. To put it numerically, the Hellcat brings 45 more...

    The original Dodge Viper revealed in 1992 was a beast of a machine — an attempt by then-Chrysler exec Bob Lutz to revive the spirit of the Shelby Cobra and give Chrysler a world-class sports car. Powered by a massive V-10 with 400 hp, the early Viper's brute force overwhelmed many drivers. Today, the power that made the Viper a legend appears to be at the heart of an order from Chrysler to dozens of trade schools, demanding the immediate destruction of some 93 early Vipers, including a preproduction model that could likely fetch a couple hundred thousand dollars at...

    The Ram 1500 has been named 2013 Truck of the Year by Motor Trend magazine. The magazine's editors were impressed by the truck's fuel economy and posh interior. "The 2013 Ram 1500 SLT is essentially like driving a Chrysler 300 with a bed," says the story that appears in the magazine's February issue. The Ram is made by Chrysler Group, which also makes the 300, a car known for its relatively upscale interior. Chrysler recently split off the Ram truck division from Dodge, so the trucks no longer carry the Dodge name. To be eligible for the Truck of the...

    After 36 years, the Dodge Dart is back, and it's no retro model. The 2013 Dart five-seat sedan is modern and stylish, with European handling and heritage, fun features, 10 air bags and fuel-thrifty engines, including two turbos. And smart design and attention to detail inside the Dart successfully groups the information from the gauges with the controls in the center of the dashboard better than any car — Dodge or otherwise. The slew of features, standard on some models and optional on others, include denim material seat inserts, heated steering wheel and a 8.4-inch touch screen with touch screen...

    When Chief Executive Sergio Marchionne introduces the Dodge Dart compact car this week, he will be showing off the first example of what a merger between Chrysler group LLC and Italy's Fiat SpA can create. The 2013 Dart -- to be unveiled at the Detroit auto show -- is based on a Fiat-engineered platform that also will serve as the basis for the next generation of Jeep SUVs. With the Dart, Chrysler aims to take market share from Toyota Motor Corp's Corolla and Honda Motor Co's Civic in an area the U.S. automaker has traditionally fallen short.

    JUNEAU — “Can someone tell me what a weapon is?” Supervisor Eugene Wurtz asked when the Dodge County Board of Supervisors took up the issue of concealed carry in county facilities Tuesday night. At the end of the discussion, the board rejected a resolution to prohibit weapons in county facilities. Concealed weapons will be allowed inside Dodge County buildings if the owner has a proper permit. According to a state law that took effect Nov. 1, local government bodies can prohibit the carrying of concealed firearms into buildings owned by that unit of government. According to a resolution proposed to...

The car, in production at the automaker's assembly plant in Belvidere, Ill., will be featured in January at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. With this vehicle, Chrysler will have a small-car offering in its portfolio for the first time in more than a decade. The car also will allow majority stakeholder Fiat to raise its stake in Chrysler by 5 percentage points to 58.3 percent once it is certified by the U.S....
