2008 Jeep Compass Sport 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Approaching 2 months and 2000 miles of commuting in Washington, DC -- avg 23.5 MPG (not bad for second worst traffic in the nation). CVT should be traded for Avenger's 4 spd auto even at expense of mileage. Love the overall driving position and utility. Wish there was less flash/rough edges where hands spend most time -- steering wheel and gear shift handle. Wide a-pillar width is distracting when rounding curves. Adequate rear seat leg room, but wouldn't want to sit on those seats for any length of time. Overall a competent beater, but it's quirks probably give it the lifespan, and legacy, of an AMC Pacer.
Favorite Features
Driving position, mileage, utility.
Suggested Improvements
Drawbacks: CVT, acceleration, back seat comfort, sharp edges on steering wheel and shift handle, ugly nose, wide a-pillars, back door handle location.
