When did Chrysler buy Plymouth?

I recently inherited my grandma’s old Plymouth, but when I went to replace a part on the car, the salesman said that Plymouth is now Chrysler. Does Chrysler own Plymouth?

Let’s take a little trip into American auto history! Chrysler withdrew Plymouth in 2001. Technically, Plymouth was always owned by Chrysler Corporation, the brand simply dissolved.
Plymouth made its debut way back in 1928 as part of the Chrysler Corporation and held its own as an auto brand well into the 1990s. Some of Plymouth’s standout vehicles over the years are the 1970s muscle-esque convertible Plymouth Valiant and 90s minivan staple Plymouth Voyager. On June 29, 2001, this marquee of Chrysler’s lineup was officially discontinued.
Nowadays, the only Plymouth you’ll see on the scene is used, which makes finding cheap car insurance for one of these older American vehicles pretty easy to find.
