Jeep Compass Hate - From Other Jeep Owners
I've been reading a few Jeep Forums and it seems like the Compass & Patriot (but more so the Compass) have been getting a lot of hate from other Jeep owners. Has anyone else been experienceing this?
Here are my thoughts on it:
I really don't understand people who get so uptight because Jeep is building a different type of vehicle. If they stopped building the Wrangler then I could understand where they're coming from but they're actually building 2 wranglers now so the attacks on the Compass & Patriot make no sense whatsoever to me.
The Wrangler is Great Off Road but terrible On Road.
The Compass is Great On Road but terrible Off Road.
The Patriot is Good Off Road and Good on Road. (The Trail Rated Version)
It's called building different vehicles for different people. Not everyone needs a vehicle that can go off road. Would people prefer that Compass & Patriot owners buy a Honda, Toyota, Subaru... or would they rather that they bought a Jeep and helped the company to prosper? (thus ensuring that the Wrangler keeps getting built)
