I've read quite a number of reviews on the Compass which would normally deter me from buying it. After test driving the Compass, I loved it. I traded in my Vibe. The Compass is quieter, rides much smoother (doesn't ride like a typical 4 cyl), more roomy. I've only put about 2,000 miles on it so far. It has plenty of pep for me and I'm getting about 30 mpg. People need to take a more serious look at the Compass, despite what the critics say. I don't have all the bells and whistles on my Compass which made it extremely affordable for me and quite the bargain.
