Acura ILX leads the list of cars people wish they hadn't bought.

Nobody wants to experience buyers' remorse, and that's especially true when dealing with something as expensive as a brand-new car.

Shocker: It's a whole heck of a lot better than the old Compass.

We pick our favorites from LA.

Spoiler alert: no Subaru Viziv-7.

And a Trailhawk model means it's even got some off-road chops.

Jeep's Compass is officially pointing in the right direction.

Jeep debuts the all new 2017 Compass in Brazil, where it will be produced. North American debut expected at the 2016 LA Auto Show.

It debuts in Brazil but will have a more formal reveal in LA.

Say goodbye to the Compatriot twins, and hello to the all-new Compass.

Undisguised SUV spotted in Brazil.

New SUV has a European touch and an upscale look.

If Jeep wants a mini Grand Cherokee, it needs to do more than copy the style. The packaging has to be right, too.

Their replacement goes into production in January, but Jeep will keep making Compatriots for 2017 to bridge the gap.

The Grand Cherokee is about to get a bouncing, budget-priced baby brother.

With looks borrowed from the Grand Cherokee, Jeep's new CUV should be a reasonably priced looker.

At the Detroit Auto Show, Jeep reveals that the next-generation Wrangler will add a long-awaited pickup model.

Jeep is marking its 75th anniversary in 2016 with a special edition for each of the six models in its lineup, all decked out in green with bronze accents.

Fiat Chrysler US issues two recalls covering about 570,000 worldwide examples of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Compass, and Patriot, and Dodge Durango.

These latest spy shots show a new Jeep crossover that will replace the Patriot and Compass undergoing testing ahead of its anticipated debut in the middle of next year.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is reportedly planning a big expansion of its product lineup, including a larger SUV to be based on the platform underpinning the Fiat 500X and Jeep Renegade.

Chrysler is recalling a small number cars over issues with their 2.4-liter four-cylinder engines. The recall, which affects 522 examples of its 2013 Dodge Avenger and Chrysler 200 models, as well as 2014 Jeep Compass and Patriot CUVs has to do with potential debris in the balance shaft bearings.

We've heard rumors before about a new, baby Jeep to slot below the new-for-2014 Cherokee (pictured) in the automaker's lineup. Now, Edmunds is reporting that the new crossover will arrive sometime in 2014, and will be about the same size as the Ford Fiesta. This currently unnamed vehicle will effectively replace both the Compass and Patriot in the Jeep lineup.

Despite its refusal to recall 2.7 million Jeep Grand Cherokee and Liberty models this week over a gas tank fire risk, Chrysler will be recalling 630,000 Jeep Compass (pictured), Patriot and Wrangler vehicles around the globe for a pair of entirely different reasons.

With more than 200,000 units across six separate recalls and almost all of its brands, it appears that Chrysler has officially jumped headfirst into the recall pool this month. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued three official recalls for the automaker, and The Detroit News is reporting that the automaker itself has announced three more.

Unless the governor, Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne, gives them a reprieve, the 2014 Jeep Compass and Patriot are expected to meet their makers sometime next year. Should they perish, it's a shame that it would happen just as they've shed the continuously variable transmission that was their major bugbear, and just as the Compass has gotten its best looks yet.

The 2014 Jeep Compass and Patriot are here, and as expected, the big news is the availability of a six-speed automatic transmission on certain models. The transmission, sourced from PowerTech (a subsidiary of Hyundai) will attempt to address the noise, vibration and harshness issues suffered by older CVT-equipped models by using noise-resistant gears. It has a long sixth gear to improve fuel economy, but Jeep hasn't revealed the mileage numbers for the auto-equipped models yet.

Last year was good to Jeep. Chrysler has announced its trail-rated brand set an all-time global sales record in 2012 by moving 701,626 units. That number easily surpasses the previous record set in 1999 when Jeep sold 675,494 models. All told, the brand saw a 19-percent sales increase worldwide over 2011, and much of that swell can be traced directly to the Wrangler. While the Grand Cherokee led Jeep sales, the Wrangler posted record numbers both globally and within the US, moving 194,142 and 14
