Motor Trend Nov 08..same old story

Just finished leafing through Motor Trend Nov 08 issue. They have a "Special Section : 2009-2019 SUV, Truck, and Minivan Buyer's Guide" As usual, or often, the Compass is conspicuously absent. The Patriot gets a lukewarm 3-star rating.
As an extremely happy Compass owner since Dec 2006, I find this rather surprising and annoying, especially since it was Motor Trend's generally positive First Drive article from Sept 06 which alerted me to the Compass, and helped me make the buying decision (not to mention the Compass' superior mpg and even acceleration data). Does Chrysler spend less advertising $ w/ the publication than Honda, Toyota, etc.?


Rav-who? CR-what? Arizona-where?
