Painted Sticker on Bumper

Hi all, I just noticed a body coloured rectangular sticker on the rear bumper nearer the left side at the back. Does anyone else have this? I'm thinking to complain to the dealer. Could it be a scratch that they've tried to cover up?

Actually I suspect it is the mold outline for the cutout for the European eye bolt tow hook (It is on mine..). For some reason Chrysler decided that cars in the US don't need to be pulled up on to tow trucks.

SO where would the tow guy pull us from without damaging the front or rear bumpers in the event we need to flat bed the Compass- or pull out of a ditch??

Oh, cars in the US/Canada don't need to be towed of course.

Seriously, I have a real issue with this as well. It was not on my mind when I bought my buggy. It is these days after seeing all the cars off the road in the storms. I also have a growing desire to head a bit off road lately.

I am going to ask my local Jeep dealer next time I am in for an oil change.

Hmm, I wonder if the Caliber or Patriot forum has any posts on this? :
