Chrysler dealers say they're optimistic, but a little worried after meeting with company executives on Sunday.
Many said after the two-hour meeting they are confident in the company's management under Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne.
But they also are worried about how they'll make it financially for the next five months or so until redesigned cars and trucks start arriving in showrooms.
Hundreds of dealers attended the annual franchise meeting at the National Automobile Dealers Association convention in Orlando, Fla.
Chrysler sales were down 36 percent last year as the company struggled through bankruptcy protection. But dealers said they're happy to hear that 12 new or redesigned vehicles will be available by the end of 2011.
