John's 2007 Jeep Compass Review
By John on
2007 Jeep Compass Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
DISLIKES: CVT at startup in cold weather is balky. Engine is noisy during acceleration. Highway mileage is not what is expected. The Ipod/phone holder is inconvenient to use while driving. You have to turn and look back to see it. Can't use arm rest with holder open. The center front armrest is too far back to be useful. Rear window wiper is too small. Trip odometer control is hard to reach. Location of cruise control is inconvenient. Standard CD player lacks compression feature. Standard sound system bass is poor. Location of rear defrost control is small and inconveniently located. LIKES: Heater warms up fast. Handling. Folding seats. Style.
Body style, formed hood over round headlights, sloping rear window, sharply slanted windshield. Folding seats are great. Cargo area is superb for my needs. Handling is great. Turning radius is small. Large radio controls. Door lock remote in key. Cargo floor. Multiple folding seats.
Larger gas tank. Backlight window and door lock controls. Provide a compass standard. Mount IPod/phone holder in the dash. Relocate and enlarge rear defrost control. Separate trip odometer. Locate cruise control in steering wheel and backlight. Non fabric covers for rear seat backs.
