Used 2008 Jeep Compass Pricing

Consumer Rating

2008 Highlights

The 2008 Jeep Compass gets a handful of equipment changes. Air-conditioning and chrome interior accents become standard in all models, and a navigation system is a new option for the Limited. Jeep has also made mild revisions to the engines and transmissions to promote smoother, quieter operation and introduced a limited lifetime powertrain warranty.


  • Low price, small size and responsive steering make it easy to maneuver, lots of headroom.


  • Cut-rate interior, sluggish acceleration coupled with noisy power delivery, excessive wind and road noise, harsh ride over bumps, not much cargo space.

Great for the first 5 yrs
My husband and i bought this jeep brand new in 8/2008, we paid it off 2yrs ago and when we paid it off we looked up the value on it which ended up being much less than we thought:( The jeep drove great at first, it has a great handle, turns eaisly. Good looking body style. But after 5 yrs the car started hesitating and as we were at a red light the car almost always wants to shut off. Well fast forward 8 yrs later... 2 major brake repair, jeep sounds awful super loud and now needs major repair. Basicly a great car for a few years.
Seven year switch
My 2008 Compass was purchased new and now has about 78k miles. In the winter months it won't take gas.... In the deep freeze I have to slowly drip gas into my tank. Takes me 20 mins to get enough gas to get me to work. In the spring/summer is fine. Now my engine is slamming around. My husband says I have a broken manifold. It is paid in full, I hate to sell, but what else can I do?
Perfect Small SUV
Love this Jeep!! Its everything I wanted in a SUV. I went from an Olds Alero to this jeep and couldn't be happier. My kids have so much more room to stretch out in. Have had the Jeep for 3 years now and have had to get the front end overhauled and new tires. Only have 127900km's on it. Still in love with my Jeep.
