A fun to drive vehicle
By R from Bklyn on
2007 Jeep Compass Limited 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
For the most part, this crossover is a pretty good vehicle for the price and features offered. Handles well and has a firm grip of the road. For under 24K, the features are what you would expect from a luxury SUV. Safety department did a solid job as well. Side airbags, electronic roll mitigation, traction control, and antilock brakes are standard. I can't tell you if they work, but knowing you have some safety back-ups gives you a secure feeling. Cons are few and simple: needs rear seat pockets for storage, cup holders swallow the average coffee cup (they are to deep and located way down in the console), the side view mirrors are suppose to fold in electrically...they don't.
Highway driving is a pleasure (not at all what you would expect from a 4 cylinder), tach reads 2100 at 75 mph and had room to keep going. Ride was even very smooth and comfortable at 75mph as well.
Power folding side view mirrors as written on sticker and brochures (for Limited), better location of cup holders, pockets on backs of front seats.
