No big sellers in sight to save troubled Chrysler

Chrysler may not have the kind of blockbuster vehicle that's gotten it out of tough times in the past.

Industry analysts say there's nothing in the 83-year-old automaker's current product portfolio that looks like a savior. The worst U.S. auto sales slump in 15 years and a chilly economy don't help, either.

Chrysler's U.S. sales are down 25 percent through September, the worst decline of any major automaker. It also faces more than $1 billion in losses for the first half of the year.

Of Chrysler's 26 models on sale in 2007 and 2008, only four have sold more this year than last. The company's market share has fallen from 16.2 percent in 1996 to 11 percent this year.
