DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – The Chrysler 200 may have been a commercial hit with audiences for the Super Bowl TV ad, but criticism of that car has led to the resignation of one Detroit area auto critic.

Scott Burgess, the auto critic at The Detroit News has resigned after editors deleted online portions of a poor review of the Chrysler 200, a car that was promoted in a popular Super Bowl TV ad starring rapper Eminem.  In the March 10 edition, Burgess said the car is a “dog” that lacks “inspiration or soul.”
