2009 Jeep Compass Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
After 15 months of driving as follows are some tips for potential buyer, I recommend a short term rental to try out (daily rental) and take close attention to the following, depending on your height and driving position this little truck may not be suitable for tall drivers ( 5'10"+ ), limited visibility due to A pillars, if you drive in a location where there are lots of pedestrians beware for posts completely block your side visibility, not sure if the patriot has the same issues but I have had several close calls, this also applies for rear view visibility and lane changes, this asides Compass is a good buy for the buck but would recommend the Patriot for any real Jeep enthusiast.
Flip switch lockable central differential. Front headlights provide excellent visibility for night driving with fog lamps Excellent handling for SUV Very decent fuel economy
Larger fuel tank a definite plus Eliminate the TPMS ( tire pressure monitor system ), have it and hate it More powerful engine would help Offer leather seat option for North trim Improved security system for window contacts Defrosting side mirrors would be nice
