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.
