August 6, 2007

Farmington Hills, Mich. — The New Chrysler Financial, created as a result of the transfer of assets from DaimlerChrysler AG to an affiliate of Cerberus Capital Management, L.P., begins operations as a stand-alone company supporting the sales operations and dealer network of "The New Chrysler," Chrysler LLC.

Paul Knauss, president and chief executive officer, stated Chrysler Financial will offer the same level of service and programs as in the past and that thanks to a comprehensive transition plan there will be no disruption to any programs or services formerly offered.
