2008 Jeep Compass Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Quiet ride, GPS easy to use, Gas sticks around 20mpg due to it seems to have to hit 5rpm or higher to shift.4x4 is actually AWD and only 4wd low. seats lay almost flat backwards for naps, very comfortable for a Jeep. Very quiet on the highway and nice ride. Handsfree bluetooth will take over your phone call when you start the truck, nice safety feature, the caller can even hear you clearly and the people in the back seat too! GPS is fairly easy to use, but the huge sound system is not as good as the base model radio due to a 3 band EQ with no sub adjustment. in the 4 fillups I've had max I've driven is 250 miles on 13 gallons, been worse ever since.

Best Features

Bluetooth handsfree is best feature, comfort and adjustability of seats is great! Lots of compartments for a pack rat, and great heated seats to prank your passengers with (get very hot) I'm a big guy 6'3 310 and I fit in this truck fairly easy with my long legs and 42" waist..not a small vehicle!

Worst Features

Better transmission, has to almost redline to shift if not using the manual static shifter. Auto off lights would be nice, has auto running lights, but a switch for the regular ones. Higher cup holders, I have to set up an expedition into a cavern to find a drink. More manly horn! factory autostart
