Critics are too Critical

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


Although the Compass is a Consumer's Digest "Best Buy" and an Edmund's Lowest Cost to own vehicle, auto magazine critics and Jeep traditionalists have not had many nice things to say about the Compass, which almost swayed me from purchasing a new Compass. Fortunately I test drove one, and for the money, you can not beat the ride, features, safety and all around capability of this vehicle. It's fun, practical and confident inspiring. Many critics make the mistake faulting this model because it is not like the more rugged, trail rated Jeep line-up. I don't think that was ever Jeep's intent. Kudo's to Jeep for thinking and building outside the box.

Best Features

Host of features and options available at minimal cost. Advanced 4WD and state-of-the-art safety and handling features usually found on much more expensive vehicles.

Worst Features

Consider a better design of lower rear bumper. Installing a trailer hitch requires some minimal modification to the rear bumper, which is expected but not desirable.
