2007 Jeep Compass Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I will never own another Jeep Compass, and would seriously have to think hard before buying anything made by Chrysler again. a standard shift transmission usually doesn't go bad, yet only Chrysler can design one that needs replacing at 400 miles, and again at 22, and again at 35k. also needing replacement within 10,000 miles: steering system components, tires, shift boot (made of plastic and cracked) shift linkage and other warrantied parts. Nothing but trouble.
It's a cute little car, and at the time we bought it the jeep name symbolized reliability in our minds, but I believe that's because I was thinking of My 20 yr old jeep wrangler, BIG mistake.
Interior looks and feels CHEAP, try less plastic, use meaty tires and soften the suspension for comfort on the highway since you can tell by looking at it this is not an off road vehicle, and seal the noise out.
