2007 Jeep Compass Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Originally shopping for the Caliber, but they were in short supply .The reason was because the Compass was being built (yes, they share the same assembly plant). It is a great car for the daily commute, especially with the Sirius radio. The rear headroom is higher, albeit the rear legroom is lacking. I should have bought one with option 26E. This would have included reclining rear seats!
Easy handling in tight spots. Sirius radio. Ground clearance --not too high or too low. Great braking system: Electronic Stability Program and Traction Control.
Fuel mileage. More rear leg room and maybe reclining rear seats as a standard feature.
