2007 Jeep Compass Limited - Cute Ute
August 30, 2007
I like the look of the Jeep Compass. The Inferno Red paint is a nice deep shade and the 18-inch chrome wheels are pretty spiffy. See how they reflect on my driveway in the morning sunlight.
I would like to see a more powerful engine offered than the 172-horsepower 2.4-liter inline 4.
Combined with the CVT it's not brilliant. You really have to floor it to get up to speed when merging onto the freeway or trying to pass. And it is LOUD at high rpm.
With that said, if you're looking for an economical little hauler, the Compass is not a bad choice. It's comfortable, it's cute and it'll cart you around town the same as a Honda CR-V.
