Low cost SUV
By izaclown1 on
2014 Jeep Compass Sport 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Never owned a Jeep before, but I bought the 5 speed with the 2.4L engine.
I have put 2k+ on it so far.
It is a fun car to drive with plenty of room for me at 6'1".
5 speed and the 2.4 is peppy, but not a race car.
Passing has not been too challenging in 5th gear.
Handles and rides better than the wife's Escape.
Headlights work very well.
Good gas economy 25-28 to and from work in mixed traffic.
Fold flat seating is a very nice feature.
Luggage tie downs are a big help as well.
I like the trip odometers and outside temp selections on the steering wheel.
Needs a 3.0L V6 option.
Bigger gas tank would be a benefit.
My Accord has 1n 18.5 tank with almost the same gas ratings.
some storage areas could be larger but functional as is.
