The XJ001 was a one off fiberglass bodied design study. It was a CJ-5 underneath. On a return trip from the Texas State Fair the semi hauling it caught on fire and the XJ001 burned up with it.

I was browsing through this thread because I have a brand new Compass in my stall at work right now, AWD with CVT. I'll give it a look over and drive it tomorrow morning and see what's up with it.

I hadn't seen one in person till today, and I really don't know what to think yet... I guess I'm in shock or something. All i've done so far is drive it in the shop, but it felt like maybe if it's a Jeep, it's a different breed or distant relative or something. Makes the other jeep models seem more in a family now. I guess it'll grow on me like the Commander did, I can get along with them much better than I did.


At first glance when I saw it, for some reason Vibe and Focus popped into mind.
HMMM it sure is different....

It's kinda growing on me... not sure if I'd buy one, but I actually think it looks nice.

(I thought it looked like crap the past few weeks... not sure what is changing my mind)?

I just passed one on the road. I thought, "What the hell is that?"

I've been basically liking it until I saw it in person the other day. The front just doesn't work for me.

OK, I ran one around town + on the hwy today. As far as a car goes, I guess it's built as good as any other Chrysler car made today, I did not like the shifter placement, but I do understand it's in the 'dash module' and is dropped into the car with the dash during assy.

The cupholders seem like you'd wreck trying to get your cup that far back and on the floor and under the console.
It's a little difficult to see when backing up, but not as bad as a Pacifica. (They're going to have a backup camera and screen in the cluster for when you back up in '07).

What I don't like about the front end the most I thnk is the triangular turn signal lenses. They don't go right to me with the too small or too high headlights and the bumper 'cheeks' under them.

It did seem to have enough power for a commuter car, went down the hwy ok. Seems easy to drive, but the base sound system in this one sounded horrible when a Metallica song came on the radio. For some reason an image popped into mind of the sound system in a friends new-at-the-time 95 or so Tercel.

IMO, the Jeep name shouldn't be on it, just Chrysler or something. Jeeps weren't cars until now. This is without a doubt a car. But If you want a car, it's probably a good one to get, although is is very similar to the Caliber, including the drop-down rear speakers. You'd have to compare the two if you were looking without a Jeep preferance. I suppose I don't feel a need to bash it, it's just a different class and brand, really.
