I know I posted this on another thread, but I feel as though the Compass's days are numbered. The bottom line is, they didn't reach their target demographic with the Compass. Granted, I love mine, but the truth is, Jeep did not accomplish what they were after with this one, and there are too many hard core Jeepers out there who will try to beat a new idea down.
I agree, to a certain extent, that Jeep had to grow and expand the brand. I mean, the old CJ's are like the Model T's, both are collectors items, but there is more value in the Jeep world on a pre AMC CJ than any other stock Jeep still on the road today (believe me, I know just by looking whether I have to wave first or return the wave based on my rank in the Jeep hierarchy), or any other vehicle, for that matter. Jeepers know what they want and what they expect, but we are still the most loyal to the brand (I threw the folks off in the Jeep club that I belong to because they were like well you pay your dues and you get a decal. I was like, I will pay my dues, but I need 2 decals. They were like, what do you mean? I said, well I have 2 Jeeps).
It will be interesting to see how the Patriot stacks up, probably will outlive the Compass, but that is the way things go. Now, the '08 Liberty, now that is a looker!
