Good Vehicle all Around
By hammerham on
2009 Jeep Compass Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I'll get the bad out of the way.
The low profile tires that this model carries were kind of weak I suggest buying the next size up.
I got some Hankook Optimo 727's at 215/65
44 pound tires 17'.
They climb a lot better but you do lose 2 mpg it seems.
I live in Pittsburgh I need the climbing ability in snow.
The good stuff:
23-25 (I actually got 27 going to New York) miles ave. on the highway 20-22 in the city.
That's awesome for a 4x4.
She is better on gas than the Liberty and I feel equal or better in mud and snow than Liberty. I'm 6-3 with room still between my head and the top.
My 6-6 friend has about an inch or two to spare.
Mine does come with adjustable seats though.
The Plug outlet, the ipod outlet, the gas mileage, the fold down seats and the handling.
Elminate the blind spots, suggest a bigger tire (not wheel 17in is good enough), stronger ball joints would also be a plus.
It's a Jeep, the parts should be a little tougher in the wheel area.
