    I agree, they are really going to have to use a lot of marketing money to offload these Compass's. I knew it was a flop since it's first appearance. The patriot is at least a good contender for years to come. If they drop the Compass they could actually boost the sales of the other vehicles. Or they could redesign it with more Trailhawk features (T-tops!). I would seriously consider buying one, if had more "fun" appeal and didn't look like a Gremlin or other vehicles from AMC reborn.

    The Compass is "gravy." If they dropped it, it wouldn't really boost sales of anything.

    The biggest problem with the Compass (aside from it's looks, IMHO) is it's marketing - no one seems to know what it really is, or what it's supposed to be.

    Looking at base models, the Patriot is the cheaper one, not the Compass.

    I think I know where they are trying to go with the Compass - but in all honesty it wouldn't be a bad idea to kill it, pop a Chrysler fasica on it, and bring it back as a 'near-lux cute-ute'.

    Am I reading this right that this is for variable valve lift? If so, probably is for the Phoenix engines. SWEET!

    Stratus - What is meant by: "will be published for opposition on" ?

    As for the bent wing on the F4U Corsair, the argument given on History channel the other night was clearance for monster prop with carrier rated landing gear.

    I believe that's the last step before an item is registered as a trademark to a company - there is a period of time where other companies are allowed to voice opposition or challenges to a trademark.

    IIRC, Nissan opposed the use of "M80" because the Infiniti division used the "M" for one of their cars. Granted, they'd never have an "M80" model, but that's how it goes.

    Toyota did the same - the Lincoln LS was to be marketed as the "LS6" and "LS8" - and since Lexus has an "LS"...you get the picture.

    I thought it was the other way around with the M80 name. Wasn't it Nissan asking if they could use it and Chrysler saying no? It would have been a good name for the Skyline if it had gone through Infinity dealers...


    I remember the LS thing. It was in direct response of Ford not allowing Toyota to call it's new truck the T-150. So we got Tundra's instead.

    I think the best name for the Skyline in the US would be "Skyline." ;)

    it turns out they got another name for the Crew. Although, I am not sure "Dodge Journey" really sounds any less inane!

    the high pressure tank...that would be for a hydrogen car? or CNG? I don't know much

    Good to see they kickekd a few trademarks over to the new company.

    As for Trailhawk, possibly just a way to keep using the name with the concept vehicle? Trying to avoid another case of the Dodge Copperhead Dodge Concept Car?

    Patents are the BIG question.

    Do I have any volunteers to take this page and put it into the wiki?

    Perhaps the folks at Nissan tasted Cincinnati's infamous Skyline Chili and decided they had come up with something anything else... :eek:
    I've had Skyline chili... once... and only once, but perhaps it's an acquired taste. Some people -god help them- really like it. :)

    NASSAU was registered to Chrysler LLC on 4/29/08.

    Chili, much like BBQ sauces and styles, differ around the country and is part of what makes food a great thing to experience. :)
