     The Jeep(R) Compass combines the packaging and functionality of an SUV
 with the performance, handling, fuel economy and price of a compact car or
 small pickup. Compass is the Jeep(R) brand's first front-wheel-drive-based
 product with a fully independent suspension for comfortable on-road ride
 and handling and fun-to-drive characteristics. Jeep(R) Compass is available
 in both front- and four-wheel drive, in Sport and Limited models.
     The Wrangler SR-A is a tire that features all-terrain traction and on-
 highway quiet. Its aggressive tread pattern is also designed for a smooth,
 quiet ride.
     Goodyear tires are original equipment on many vehicles from Acura,
 Audi, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford, GMC, Honda, Hummer, Infiniti,
 Isuzu, Jeep(R), Land Rover, Lexus, Mazda, Mercury, Mitsubishi, Nissan and
 Toyota. Traditionally, more new vehicles in North America are equipped with
 Goodyear tires than any other brand.
