Pohanka Chrysler Dodge is one of the legions of Chrysler dealerships that are going to be closing, and the owners are not happy about it. Pohanka Chrysler Dodge will not be able to sell any of its new Dodge or Chrysler vehicles after June 9th, which means that they have to move inventory as quick as they can for deep discounts of up to 40% or more.
