I bought the Jeep Compass because I had heard it was a great little SUV along with great reliability....I was very wrong!! I have had the brand new Jeep for only three months and just last week the transmission went out, and it only has 8,000 miles! The passenger door makes a loud screeching noise every time you open it and the rear doors are not even flush with the car. i have to say that is one of the cheapest, and most unreliable cars I have ever owned!
I do like the IPod direct connect to the radio. For being a 4cycle it does have some pretty good up and go.
The whole structure of the car. First starting with the interior..(cheap) and then second do something about the faulty transmissions.
