2008 Jeep Compass Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I have owned the Compass for about two months and have been impressed at its performance in bad weather conditions. We live in the Washington Cascades and this winter have had snow accumulation of 5ft on the ground. Needless to say my driveway has been a mess a lot of the winter and the Compass has never been stuck. I have confidence that it will plow through. The reviews say that the Compass is not a "true Jeep", but my driveway is rutted and graveled and very much off road and the Compass has peformed well. (actually as well or better than my 4X4 Pickup) Safety features are also great! My wife and son are the principal drivers and I have confidence they are protected.
A comfortable AWD 4x4 vehicle for a reasonable price. The heated seats are great as is the stereo, roominess and moonroof. I like the "cheap interior" of the so called expert reviewers. It is easy to clean and is simple. Guess I am a simple minded person!
Do something about the blind spot when looking out the rearview mirror.
