2012 Jeep Compass Latitude 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl CVT)
After doing 4 months of extensive research on various small SUVs, the Compass Lattitude 4x4 proved to be the best value for my dollar.
Love the new 'baby Grand Cherokee' design.
Decent gas mileage with surprisingly more power than I was lead to believe from reading the expert reviews.
Handles like a car but still has the solid build of a Jeep SUV.
All in all, IMHO, beats the Rav4,
Sun and Sound group with sun roof and 9 Boston Acoustic speakers!
Sound is amazing! Remote start is such is fantastic. I live in Seattle where I have to drive in lots of standing water on the highways, not a problem! Can't wait to see how it does in the snow. So far, dare I say, does better than my old Subaru.
Love the Uconnect system.
Clean, no nonsense interior.
Comfortable seats that fit the large men in my life.
Love the adjustable height drivers seat.
Rivals my old Mercedes C230 in overall interior comfort.
For a vehicle named a 'Compass' you would think that it would have a built in compass standard...but no.
Other then that, love it.
