i'm like you......even with the numbers much lower, i see MANY more Compass' than Patriots. go figure.......

Regions

It must be a regional thing, here in the metro Detroit area I see the reverse, many more Patriots and very few Compasses. Calibers seem the most popular.

Is it a suprise that most Jeeps dealers aren't selling many of the Compass? Our dealer in Iowa City hasn't been able to get one since May....they have a single used Compass on the lot this week and about 6 new Patriots.

Wow, that's a really low number for September. I wonder where one could find those numbers for Canada.

I've noticed our local dealers only have one or two on the lot. It seems like they'd order if they could, I wonder is there is some sort of availablity problem from the factory?

Maybe they have cut back on production of the Compass because the Patriot was selling better but in the process cut back so much that they have very few to ship from the factory thereby causing an artificial shortage and lowering the sales numbers to lend credence to the Compass not selling as well and stopping production. It's a possibility. Lately I've see several new Compass' around but no new Patriots.

Another Compass in the "hood", right next door. Neighbor Nancy (about my age) was asking about mine a few months back, also talked to my oldest daughter about her Libby. She didn't like the mpg's in her Mariner and it sat too high for her mother to get in /out of.

I don't know too many particulars yet like a left over 2008 or a new 2009, pricing etc. It's a Red Sport, CVT and 4X4.

I do seem to see more ads for the Patriot than the Compass. Around here in Orangeville Canada, I'm seeing more Compass's now but still nowhere near the number of Calibers.

Sorry that I'm late with this. The economy is down but Compass sales picked up a little and the Patriot still showing well. Chrysler LLC is getting involved with Fiat to develop more fuel efficient engines over the next few years in an effort to bring them back to profitability.

I saw an article that the Belvidere plant is adding another shift to make more Calibers. Will production of Compass and Patriot be increased also?

I'm seeing pretty much an equal mix in my area, back roads, in town, all around. Here is the report for Sept 1 from Chrysler that gives the info for Aug http://media.chrysler.com/newsreleas...IId=9043&mid=1

More interesting to me was the report from Aug 1 that covered July http://media.chrysler.com/newsreleas...IId=8913&mid=1 that shows Patriot sales beating out everything else that Jeep offered by quite a large margin and coming in second only behind Dodge Caravan across the board! Patriot had a 134% increase in sales for July and Compass showed a 95% increase.
