2009 Jeep Compass Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
We tried to buy a Patriot during cash for clunkers but couldn't find one with 4wd anywhere in the country so got the Compass instead. BIG mistake! I have to put a cushion on the seat because it is too narrow for my wide load and the seat belt digs into my right thigh when driving. The rear-view mirror gives a tiny view through the small back window but worst of all, I can't change lanes because the high seat backs in the back row completely block my view of the next lane. Dangerous! Handling is fine, looks are great, and fuel is okay. I'm getting about 24 on mostly highway. I just don't think I can stand the discomfort so I'm considering selling or trading this in now.
Looks good, has great cup holders.
Improve the view to eliminate blind spots. Fix the poor design of the sliding arm rest (WHY does it slide??)
