Ignore the critics.... Compass is A-OK!

2008 Jeep Compass Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Our 2008 Compass Sport is an extremely nice, well featured vehicle... esp. when considering what we paid out-the- door for it: $16,400. The interior catches way TOO much flak from reviewers. It is roomy and the seats are very comfortable. Gas mileage is good: 4 people/luggage, A/C on, 75 mph produced nearly 26 mpg on a recent trip. No A/C and under 65 mph pushed it up over 30 mpg! It's been reliable, and only had one warranty repair for a couple of suspension bolts in nearly 20k mileage. As far as performance... all you have to do is put your foot down on the accelerator a bit more firm and get the RPMs up. That's it. The 172 HP does the rest. Highly recommend for $$$
Auto CVT/power windows/locks/tilt/cruise/rear defrost/privacy glass/air conditioning/ABS/traction control/CD player/spoked 17" rims... all for $16,400 OTD! Comfortable seating for 4 adults.
2009 interior redo took care of the armrest padding and need for a bit more sound deadening /insulation.
