Great vehicle for the price!
By Rich Reed on


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


I've had the Compass for 15 mos., and have not gone back to the dealer for anything. I have the 5 spd. manual, as I prefer that with a 4 cylinder. Long trips give me 28-30 mpg's, while my "rural" driving returns 27 mpg's. Seldom do city driving. I use the Compass for errands, fishing, and hunting, (with dog). Therefore, the "cheap" plastic interior is just fine, and easy to keep clean. No regrets buying the Compass!

Best Features

Like the elevated seating position, & easy in, easy out. Good build quality. Nice exterior design. Plenty of space for dog, gear, etc. Mileage is good for this type of vehicle. Love the 110 AC outlet, (use it frequently).

Worst Features

ALL doors need to unlock when the ignition is turned off! After 15 mos., I still go the rear liftback, only to return to hit the unlock button. Arm rests definitely need some padding.
