Popular mechanics got it right - Unfortunately
I found this today. I guess I feel morose about my Compass but they are right.

1. Jeep Patriot, Compass and Dodge Caliber
Back when Daimler was running the show, there were two design exercises for a Jeep based on the Dodge Caliber. One was a more traditional boxy Jeep, while the other was a sportier "soft roader." Chrysler couldn’t decide which one to produce, so instead, they built both. Between the two, the Patriot is better. But neither one registers a blip on the mediocrity scale. And neither one offers the kind of off road capability real Jeeps needs to remain authentic.
