2007 Jeep Compass: No Guts, No Go

Wow, I so don't like our 2007 Jeep Compass. It has no guts whatsoever. Whenever I tried passing someone last night on the freeway -- pressing the accelerator, then stomping on it -- it wouldn't respond. "Huuuuuuuuh?" it seemed to be saying.

It was like kicking someone who isn't paying attention...and who doesn't react to pain. It was so slow and loud that I had to check the display to make sure I hadn't inadvertently activated the Autostick feature and put it in 1st gear. Nope, that's how it is in Drive.
