Chrysler LLC is reporting today that May 2008 sales are down over 25% compared to the same time period from last year, with Jeep Brand sales down a total of 16%. The ever popular Jeep Wrangler was down 25%, while the goliath Jeep Commander saw sales plummet with a 63% drop off from the same time period last year. The Jeep Patriot was the lone positive performer among Jeep models at an 82% increase with 8,199 units sold. With fuel prices weighing heavy in consumers minds, it’s easy to see why sales for the more fuel-efficient Patriot have have jumped way up. The Jeep Compass is showing a 13% decrease in sales from this period last year. The question we then have to ask is, if the also fuel-efficient Compass won’t sell now, when will it sell?
