If you want the wranglers and cherokee's to still be around Jeep has to evolve. I personally love the compass. I would never use it as an off roader, thats why I have a TJ duh, but as a grocery getter, bad weather, take the kids to the beach it will be very nice. I dont know if I will get it or a 4dr wrangler but I'd be happy with either. People have got to realize the compass isnt meant to cross the rubicon

My wife threw more sand than that on those same dunes in our grocery-getting 4 wheel Drive Expedition...

I am seriously going to look at adding a Compass to my fleet next fall. If I do it will replace my wife's PT Cruiser. I will not be buying it as an offroad vehicle, and do not expect much from it other than to provide a solid daily driver with decent gas mileage and enough room for a week's worth of groceries for two. Which is about the same thing I expect from her PT. The added bonus of 4WD for use in snow and camping/fire roads is just icing on the cake. Hopefully, not many people will buy them, and I will be able to pick up an '07 for cheap next year.

I dont think its as much as we "hate the compass" as in where let down by jeep putting it in production. When u think of jeep u think off amazing offroader. not petite highway crusier. But i unno i maybe alone in thinking this.

So you're short the Caliber and what else?

Even the Caliber R/T comes up short too, such as: no ESP, ERM, Fold-away mirrors or Side Curtain Air Bags Front AND Rear, 1.5" less Ground Clearance, 2" less Seating Height, less Interior Volume, no 4X hi range lock, less cargo hooks in cargo area and no pre-cut holes in the roof rails for cross bars just for starters.

Oh, so your dream car has a chill zone. Oh, my.

i dont actually want a dodge caliber. i was just poking fun at the compas, thats all.

my dream car is a 1968 cadillac eldorado, fell free to make fun.

i dont really care if you drive a compass, i'd rather have you drive that than a civic or rav 4 or something.

I'd rather drive a Compass, too, and I can't poke fun at anything from the '50's, '60's or '70's, that was my hay day ! My '64 Imperial can beat your '68 Caddy tho, and I do have one of those. We used to go cruzin' in a '57 Eldo, their cool.

I caw a Caliber with a big boo boo on the left rear fender today, I still felt sorry for them!

I liked the Caliber as well but when the time came I couldn't find any Caliber R/T AWD's . I did find a Compass and the wife and I love it. Enuff said.

It's hard to beat 2.91 gears for top end or do you prefer 1/4 mile against my Challenger T/A? My Model A was great in the sand or no roads at all and the Model AA ton and a half could darn near climb a telephone pole in granny low! I used to be cool.
