2007 Jeep Compass Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I've only had this vehicle for a short amount of time but in that amount of time I have come to truly enjoy it. What many consider negative features of the Compass truly don't understand what they're driving. Yes, from a stand still it takes the CVT some time to get to full highway speeds. However, short of drag racing or awkward on-ramps, how often does someone get on an expressway starting at 0 MPH? Lack of cargo space? Not really. The Compass has adequate space for everyday necessities, and with the 60/40 back seats I can't imagine not having enough room. I'd target this vehicle at a younger audience who want nice features with an affordable price tag.
The YES captain chairs upgrade is well worth it. Adequate leg room for even the tallest of passengers. Confidence while driving when you know you have almost every auto safety feature available to you, standard. Gas mileage!
Back window defroster and A/C controls are awkward and hard to find. Better center console. Standard crossbars for the utility rails would be nice. Silver on doors and control console doesn't look good with the tan interior.
