Been driving my 2009 compass for 15 months. Been in the shop 3 times now for different issues/defects. passing is difficult, it has not "get up and go" !It's loud, my breaks have squeaked and ground since day one. It has not been reliable for me, and I will be trading mine in within the next few weeks!
I like the space it's provided without having to drive a huge "mommy mobile". It rides smoothly.
I think at this stage power windows and locks should be standard in even the lowest models of any vehicle! It needs work.
