Jeep Sales down -43% for September 2008

Chrysler LLC announced their September 2008 sales figures this week and the news is not getting any better.  Jeep Brand Sales are down -43% overall from the September sales period in 2007.  All models had significant drops in sales, with the gas-hogging Commander and relatively fuel-efficient Compass taking the biggest hit, a -65% drop.  The Patriot, having the same or comparable gas mileage as the Compass, had sales drop only -25%, probably speaking for the public’s preference for the Patriot’s boxier body style.  Sales were down for the Jeep Grand Cherokee -56%, the Jeep Wrangler -29%, and the Jeep Liberty -27%.  Jeep Brand Sales are down -26% for the year.
