2007 Jeep Compass Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
The reviews of the Compass have been almost universally negative, and almost universally wrong. It's a great car, economical, safe, comfortable, fun, and stylish! I've had plenty of stares and at least three women tell me they really like how it looks. The acceleration is good: good from a stop and good for passing. It just feels slow because of the CVT, which takes a little getting used to, but is really nice once to adjust your driving style.
Aux jack for my iPod, heated seats, one-touch sunroof, rear seat room for my two boys (ages 9 & 6). Two-tone interior. Safety.
Bigger gas tank. 13 gal. is just not enough. More exterior color options. I bought a red one because it was on the lot, but also because it's the best color. Most of the others are Jeep boring, and not fun like Dodge.
