    New Jeep fails a crash test

    I would've never expected a new car fare this badly...

    Well, it's not exactly a new car. The Compass is as old as the SX4, its first year on the market was 2007 and it hasn't seen anything more than cosmetic updates. It's basically just an overweight version of the Dodge Caliber.

    I know the ENCAP requirements got stricter recently, but 2 stars is worse than Dacia Dustbin or whatever it's called

    Wow, I want my government sites to be that nice and well laid out. Europe has it going on in the web design field.
    I am the Angel of Death for Automotive companies in the US, I have owned a Saturn and a Suzuki.

    It is
    legitimate to compare my Suzuki SX4 to a Ferrari; Italian Designed, Superb engineering, and she burnt to the ground in a blaze of oil and carbon fiber glory.
