What Kind of Talisman is Jeep, Anyway?

What if Jeep is just bad juju? The iconic American brand has soldiered on through ownership by Willys-Overland, Kaiser, AMC and now Chrysler. What do its three previous owners have in common? They're all dead! Jeep's the carrot on a stick in any deal to sell Chrysler Group. Jeep will love you and leave you for dead as it lures in its next victim. It could possibly be known as the black widow of American automotive brands. Shall we advise a stern caveat emptor to any potential Jeep suitors? We shall.
