2009 Jeep Compass Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I waited for the 2009 and the new interior is great! The manual transmission is the way to go, I drove a CVT version (as a rental) and I did not like it. Love the Rally E package and the upgraded sound system is clearer and sharper than my old Rockford Fosgate (Mitsubishi) stereo. Without the downshift of the manual long hills would be a problem. Other than hills overall pick-up is fine. I commute daily and the Compass is great in snowy /icy conditions. I am very very pleased with my Compass. You really get alot for your money.
Boston Acoustic speakers, the look of the Rally E package, interior design, traction and safety features. Manual transmission. Heated seats.
