China Gets One of America's Top TWATs
September 17th, 2007 9:14 AM Share
When TTAC revealed its Ten Worst Automobiles Today (TWAT) awards for 2006, the Jeep Compass "won" the second slot. "A pox on their house for building the Compass," William C. Montgomery wrote in his summary. It's "an ugly, gangly, underpowered, mud-aversive half-breed… turning all who see it– or God forbid buy it– into grotesque, bobble-headed morons." China Knowledge is reporting that Chrysler is now sharing this transformational tragedy with consumers in The People's Republic of China. In fact, they plan to sell 50k of them to unsuspecting Chinese. BTW, the move was initiated long before America received tens of millions of lead-painted toys.

What do you expect from a company who's entire identity was stolen by our government & placed in the hands of the lowest bidder.
the prius is still much uglier-if you just judge by looks-and i guess it wouldnt be so bad to buy a compass right now with a life time warrenty-plus you can say your riding a TWAT
When I saw the title of this article, I thought Hilary had finally given up on America. Maybe she'd look better in traditional Chinese face paint?
