Soon after Chrysler announced a $1,000 incentive for consumers willing to trade their Accord, Camry, Fusion or Altima for a Sebring, more cash was offered up on some of their slower moving models.

Rebates are now available on the 2007 Chrysler Aspen and 2007 Jeep Compass, in the form of $1,000 for the former and $750 for the latter.

Both vehicles have garnered their fair share of criticism, mainly centered on what many see as botched badge engineering. In the case of the Aspen, the marketing of an upscale Durango has seemed to fallen flat and the Compass' lack of off-road cred has diluted the brand's rough and tumble image.

      "Amazing, Durango is garbage and does not sell, so what do they do? they put a new grill call it chrysler aspen and think it will do better.
      What fools."

      I wonder how the Durango is garbage? Beats the tar out of the Sequoia, Expedition, Armada, but it's garbage :rolls eyes:....righttttttttttt....

      All I can say is....

      The Aspen...YUCK!

      The Compass is a terrific tool for getting ladies who don't off-road...but inexplicably want a JEEP...into a smaller, more efficient and better suited car. Not to mention the safety factor. How many Grand Cherokees have been turned on their ends by women applying mascara.

      I will now take my chauvenistic ass outta here. Cheers!

      It's going to take more cash to move these babies.

      The Durango isn't a bad SUV. Rides and handles better than I expected it to. Not sure why Chrysler needed an almost identical SUV, though. The prices are also almost identical when equipped the same way:

      #7 "you can't go off road in USA even if you wanted to"

      You are wrong. There are still many places to go in the USA. Why don't you check out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_off-roading_organizations#United_States

      This weekend revealed that toyota was knocking off 2500 per Camry...LOL...Tundras was 6K off to move the older models.

      I guess they are trying to keep the numbers up.

      I was at the Jeep dealer yesterday for an oil change. Saw the Compass and checked it out. I think its a good car and has more safety features than my Focus, and more room inside. The important thing is that my wife likes it, so we may be trading the Focus for the Compass. If enough people think like that, then Jeep will have more profitability and be able to keep making Wranglers. I'm waiting for the Patriot for me, though, although that Wrangler 4-door looks pretty tempting, too!

      I saw a compass the other day; it was Jeep green, some middle aged woman was in the driver's seat.

      And, i thought they couldn't make the Caliber any uglier...

      "Ohh come on, off road this off road that, you can't go off road in USA even if you wanted to. I was offroad once in my lifetime....cop pulled me over so i had to come OFF the road. I was going to slow in the right lane."

      Well, RZ, if you're performing indecent acts with strange guys, of course a cop is going to go after you. Indecent acts are indecent acts, whether you're on-road or off.

      This is just the tip of the iceberg folks. They are dumping lots of vehicles into rental right now. They are running the factory on OT and building more vehicles that they can't retail. And they still have thousands of '06's sitting in storage lots that dealers are refusing to take.

      I don't what they are thinking. Ford and GM are cutting production and not putting near as many vehicles into rental right now and even less in the coming years. I believe DCX soon could be in even more dire straits than GM/Ford combined.

      The Compass.....I drove by a Jeep dealer the other day and threw up in my mouth a little....and Im a Land Rover fan for crying out loud....I should hate Jeeps but instead I have sympathy for regular Jeep (read: Wrangler) owners and the brand that has destroyed itself :(


      Ah yea nice try...you might want to take a another look at that Freelander thing LR did a couple of years ago...holding back the puke wasn't an option....

      and the Compass' lack of off-road cred has diluted the brand's rough and tumble image.-------------LOL, wow, because as we all know our houses and local WalMart and Costco are separated by Jungle.

      Ohh come on, off road this off road that, you can't go off road in USA even if you wanted to. I was offroad once in my lifetime....cop pulled me over so i had to come OFF the road. I was going to slow in the right lane.
