They seem to really have it out for GM and Chrysler.
As for the Compass, I think reviewers are way too harsh in general. It's almost like they follow a template for their criticism. They always start out with a discussion of interior materials (mainly plastic) and how cheap they are when compared against vehicles that cost $5000+ more. They never bring up the fact that you can get a Compass with AWD, ABS, side airbags, etc., etc., for a fraction of what it would cost in a supposedly comparable, yet significantly more expensive vehicle--It always comes down to cheap plastic :-)
After complaining about cheap materials yet again, a typical reviewer then gets very nostalgic about ruining the sanctity of the the Jeep name, and then goes into a tirade about how the Compass isn't meant for off road use and doesn't have a low lock.
