2007 Jeep Compass Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I have owned my Compass for about half a year. My initial thoughts weren't great, I was disappointed with the gas mileage and performance. Although it could use more power, the gas mileage has improved greatly w/time. I recently got lost in the Arizona mountains during a road trip and it handled great on ridiculous terrain. I was pleasantly surprised and am now content with my purchase.
Reliability, really lives up to the Jeep name. And of course the TRUE 4x4.
Comfortable Interior More HP An actual Compass (std) I would also like for the rear window on the tailgate to open separately, like every other compact SUV.
I have had my Jeep for 8 months and I have now gone through 3 transmissions and also ABS sensors. I bought this car hoping that it would get me through college and unfortunately it has done nothing but give me problems and make me never want to purchase a Jeep again! If I were you I would not buy a Jeep compass and especially one with a manual!
After 60K plus miles through all sorts of weather(rain, mud, ice, wind and terrain, on and off road, our Compass 4X4, manual tranny, has been simply a wonderful vehicle, doing it all, reliably and frugally. Transporting family for a night out on the town, long trips or hauling dogs, deer corn, welders and angle iron all over our family's hill country ranch, the Compass hasn't missed a beat. 29 miles plus per gallon on the highway and 22 plus in city driving. American made, reliable as sunrise. Jeep has done it again.
Does what I need from long highway trips, churning through mud, brush and harsh terrain on the ranch, and cleaned up to take my beloved wife to the nicest place for a date. All the while, sipping gas and no repairs. Check out the price for base model.
I'm just wondering if the stiffness and stickiness in shifting gears is normal or is some thing wrong? Otherwise I am very pleased with the car,and my gas mileage on highway is about 33-35 mpg. Thanks!
mileage,room, easy driving, looks and nice comments.
