More than 9,000 vehicles have been produced at Chrysler’s Toledo Assembly complex, but the company said it was still performing tests on the vehicles.

Chrysler has said the Cherokee will be in dealerships by Tuesday. A small number of vehicles were spotted being driven Wednesday at the former Dana Holding Corp. facility in Ottawa Lake.

The facility, now owned by MITRP LLC, was used by Dana to test vehicles and as a technology school for employees and customers.
