Not so economical
By Bou on
2007 Jeep Compass Limited 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I purchased this car and the next day at about 105 miles started a 450 mile trip. I was not expecting to get 19 MPG on hwy after reading on the Jeep website that you get 380 mile range per tank full. 210 miles into the trip on flat Southern Florida hwy, I had to stop for gas and every 210 to 230 miles thereafter for the rest of the trip and on the way back. Yes A/C was on but 19 mpg. I love the car, the interior and exterior designs but I am very disappointed with the gas mileage. The mileage was a major factor in the purchase decision and I feel that I was lied to.
The shift paddle came very handy on small hills driving.
Gas mileage. At hwy speed when you push on the accelerator you get a very sluggish response. A few times, I had to look at the rpm to see if pushing the pedal was having the desired effect. No torque at those speeds.
