Car maker Chrysler has posted its best quarterly profit in 13 years - not bad for a company that almost died three years ago.


The firm earned 473 million US dollars (£293 million) in the first quarter, mainly from strong US sales, which rose 39% between January and March. Customers snapped up Ram pick-ups, Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs and Chrysler 200 saloons.
