Review

I bought my 2010 Compass used with 36000 miles automatic variable transmission I don't know why edmunds gave it such a bad review I love love love this vehicle the only thing I have to complain about is that I wish I would have gotten the latitude or limited instead of the sport but the next compass I buy will be one of those 2 models


Favorite Features

2010 Jeep Compass SUV Sport 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I needed a low cost reliable replacement for an old 4WD that was costing me a fortune to keep on the road. Thanks to the bad review, I was able to scoop up a certified used Jeep Compass with 2 years on the warranty for less than $16,000 (automatic with power package) -sweet! Why the bad review? It isn't a big tough off road vehicle, a honking big family/gear hauler, or a luxury vehicle. It is just a great everyday car. I found the interior nicer and more comfortable (reclining rear seats=less cargo space) than the Toyota RAV and it is less noisy and had better reliability than a pre 2009-Subaru Outback - both more $$. Getting 27 MPG mixed city/highway!


Favorite Features

Great looks Good mileage Kind to rear seat passengers with plenty of legroom, reclining seats, and unbreakable cupholders. Electric outlet Can fold down front passenger and rear seats flat fitting 8 feet long carpet or vintage skis


Suggested Improvements

Even better mileage More cargo space Power-adjust seats 4 year warranty

Review

Great car for the money. We get 26 MPG on the Xway and 23 City. Only problem is the screws holding the roof rack have all rusted. I'm talking about a 16 month old car with under 16,000 miles that is kept in a garage. Since we noticed the rusting we have looked at other Compass' parked and noticed they all have rusted roof rack screws. Dealer will replace the screws but not with stainless steel as they should be. Suggest that if you own a Compass. you check for the same problem.


Favorite Features

Good gas mileage


Suggested Improvements

Use stainless stell screws on the roof rack.

Review

So far I'm fairly impressed. I bought the 2010 4x4 Sport Automatic used with 32,000miles. I love how it looks, it's comfortable, has all the room I need & 4x4 capability. I've noticed that the top 1/2 of the gas tank does much better than the lower 1/2. Generally 28-29mpg compared to 22-23mpg respectively. I've also noticed the "wobble" during braking others have noticed but it doesn't happen frequently. It handles very well. It has stability & traction control. You can easily put the car in manual when needed. I have 2 complaints: There is a noticeable feel when the car downshifts (but smooth acceleration). For safety they should have adjustment buttons for the radio on the steering wheel


Favorite Features

Chrome details, sleek looking interior/exterior, lighted cup holders, handles well, great gas mileage on the top 1/2 tank, towing capability, plenty of storage room for a small SUV, roof tie racks, headlights illuminate a very wide area, option to put the car in manual for driving in bad weather.


Suggested Improvements

Adjustment buttons on the steering wheel to control the radio. It's just safer. Whatever will make the engine smoother on downshifting.

Review

First, Edmunds doesn't even list my model. I bought a basic, bottom of the line compass. I even had to purchase, and install cruise control in the vehicle myself. It was an easy 20 minute job. The cruise unit, was plug-n-play! Rides great, very comfortable seats. Fit and finish of both the interior and exterior are great! It's my first American vehicle since 1984. I was pleasantly surprised of the quality. The price was fantastic compared to any other of the vehicles in its class!!! The back seat, when in the "up" position, really interferes with rear vision, so mine is always down. Combined mileage is a consistent 24MPG. HWY mileage varies between 27 and 29MPG.


Favorite Features

4x4 Traction Control Standard rear wiper Standard Fog Lamps Ability to either place the transmission in "D", or Manually select the 6-speed option


Suggested Improvements

Better location for the 4x4 switch. How about a button on the dash. Removable rear seat headrests. Higher ride height.
