2007 Jeep Compass Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I bought mine back in May 2007, and have driven it all over the country since! I absolutely LOVE it!
My only complaint is there is not a lot of "get up and go" power.
It's super comfortable inside, very user friendly, and not too mention...the exterior looks HOT! (I got the chrome wheels and gas cap, on black). I haven't used the 4 wheel drive yet, but plan to soon on a trip to Big Bear. The upgraded Boston sound system is awesome.
Oh, also mine has maxed out at 23 mpg, daily runs to and from work, it only gets about 21 mpg. So increase the MPG and a little more horse power, then it'd be near perfect!
2007 Jeep Compass Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
We bought a 2007 Jeep Compass after trying several other models including the Honda Element(expensive) and the Subaru Impreza(ok). We have had the car for one year and put 18,000 miles. No problems, great in the snow, fun around town, comfortable back seat, averages 24 mpg just like it said it would. A great car that is getting a bad rap by people who don't own one. I would say look to the owners and see what they are saying. The biggest negative is the interior- which I like. And the fact it isn't "Trail Rated"- Hello McFly- not going on the Rubicon anytime soon! Give this one a second look and you won't be sorry.
The style and the ride. The back seats are made for adults. Sirius is also nice.
A Compass and maybe sport utility bars as a standard feature.
Interesting that the owner reviews are averaging a 9. SUV handles well, is very comfortable to drive. Traded a 2001 PT Cruiser that we loved. Even road tested a 2008 PT Cruiser. Wouldn't think twice after testing the Compass. Upgraded the Sport version with A/C, sunroof, seats, etc. Well worth it.
Ride is excellent, seats very comfortable, CVT trans works well.
Like a bunch of other reviews, a built in compass would have been cool.
