I purchased the Compass when I turned in my Commander. I was worried about getting a smaller vehicle, but it is great. It has 6 speed manual or ride it in drive. I am averaging 26 mpg and I drive highway and city.
Heat seats, chrome wheels, sun roof, reclining back seats, roof rack, auto start. the best is the U-Connect Radio and Navigation system.
The only suggestion is covering the gas tank more from the back.
