2009 Jeep Compass Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


This is a great small SUV. I have repeatedly driven a 07 Ford Escape, and a 06 Toyota Highlander and the Compass is a lot more fun to drive. It's not exceptionally quick or powerful, my previous vehicle was a Dodge Ram with a 5.7L Hemi, but the car-like handling makes up for it. Also, the fuel efficiency seems to be better than the 25mpg stated. I have worked it out to be roughly 30mpg city and 40mpg highway. It felt a little sluggish when I first started driving it, but when I became more familiar with the CVT nuances, I feel the performance has increased. The interior is more than competent and rather comfortable, even considering my 6'6" frame. Also, the entertainment options are a plus.

Best Features

Sleek design Boston Stereo System Sirius Satellite Radio 150V Plug-in

Worst Features

The CVT seems slightly off. The point of the CVT is to optimize the RPMs at certain speeds but I find that sometimes I can achieve lower a RPM at the same speed by using the "Auto-Stick" electronic control. However, the CVT most often does it job properly. It just takes a little getting used to.
