2008 Jeep Compass Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
We traded in our second Honda Hybrid for this 2008 Jeep Compass (had a 2003 and 2005 Honday Civic hybrid...transmissions and CV joint went out on both of them).
I liked the styling of the Compass because it didn't really look like anything but a Jeep.
Plus, I'm 5'11" and fit very comfortably in this Compass...unlike the Civic.
Nice & comfy for road trips too; not alot of road noise. Using BF Goodrich tires and makes for a nice ride.
Averaging about 32 to 33 mpg on the freeway when doing 60mph and using cruise control. No frills basic interior, typical utilitarian Jeep.
Great for commuting & running about town.
Lots of room for grocerices or a weekend camping/skiing trip.
Rear brake pads will need replacing soon, as the car now has 50k miles. Factory stereo sounds ok, but we installed MB Quart 6x9 speakers...now sounds even better. Blind spots take some getting used to.
