2007 Jeep Compass Sport 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I never bought a new car before, always bought used. That is until I first saw the Compass back in September of 2006! It's body style is so unique, I had to check it out. Now, 18 months later, I still love my Compass inside and out! I have had only one minor problem, an air sensor, which was quickly diagnosed and replaced. I get between 24 and 25 mpg and I would say that 75% of my driving is city versus highway!


Best Features

Body style, interior space, stereo system (optional)


Worst Features

Seats, especially rear are a bit hard. Material used to cover doors is too easily scratched by the retracting seatbelt.

2007 Jeep Compass Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This car is amazing for what it is. The key part however, is "what it is". It is everything I expected. I purchased this for my wife, and If you are looking for a good gas mileage true 4x4 (and not those pesky AWD only things running around), there's nothing better. I have been so impressed that I sold my 2005 Ford and bought a patriot myself. I'm 6'9", and even with me driving a 6'6" person can fit comfortably behind me. This isn't true of most Cadillacs, more or less a compact SUV? The ESP and other features work wonders, and I honestly believe this may be the most versatile drive train on any vehicle. Not sure why they may a 2WD version though. jeep has turned it around big time!


Best Features

The CVT is great once you get used to it, the electromagnetic 4x4 works great for onroad driving. Gas mileage is good. Easy to clean interior huge plus. Appearance, performance, AWD + 4x4, strong 172 hp motor, huge interior room, has all the features available that someone would want are all pluses


Worst Features

There is some road noise, but it's a jeep. I expected it. Needs some non-slip grip in the understereo compartment, things slide right out. NO automatic headlights is the only huge complaint I have with it. To think, a car today doesn't have that option?

Review

I love my car. It was a gift from my family. There are more positive things about my car than negative however I have had serious water leaking in my car problems. Seattle get a lot of rain. This winter my entire floorboard has been flooded due to a leak from the roof rack. A week in the shop and now I have massive water leaking through the front light dome dripping on the gear panel. The dealership is working with me and willing to replace the carpet. Because I didn't buy the extended warranty, they would not give me a loaner and they want a good review in customer service! I have complained about squeaky brakes and the rust that build up on the tire rim. Their response is that is normal. Lemon law!


Best Features

Leather seats. Just the right size for a Grammy. Music system is wonderful! Comfortable. Attractive.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage. Padded interior doors and panels because it is too easy to get scratched. Better gas mileage or live up to what you advertise. Less noise on the wheel. Fix the rust on the rims. Have a better policy on repairs on manufacture errors. I should have been given a loaner!

Review

I started looking for something that was fun to drive and had a unique look. As soon as I pulled out of the dealership for my test drive, I fell in love with how it handled. I have taken it on a few road trips and had amazing gas mileage. My only gripe (which is actually a good thing) is that I have had to learn to be to overly cautious with blind spots because I am a little shorter. That aside, I have recommended not only my Compass but Jeeps in general to anyone and everyone who will listen. It is an amazing SUV that gets great mileage (I average 30 mpg highway), haven't had any problems with upkeep, and is it a lot of fun to drive.


Best Features

The interior console and dashboard are fantastic. There are so many little cubbies and holders for things, I never have to dig for my phone or a pen when I'm running through the bank drive through.


Worst Features

The sides of the windows are a little large and can create blind spots for shorter people.
