I absolutely love this vehicle. It's comfortable to drive, and i have plenty of room for my toddler's seat in the back. The back seats are adjustable, so my husband was able to get her seat in super snug. I love the gas mileage with this. I live by the beach, so a 4x4 wasn't necessary. Just a great car for the price. The metallic paint is just gorgeous, too.
I purchased the Compass when I turned in my Commander. I was worried about getting a smaller vehicle, but it is great. It has 6 speed manual or ride it in drive. I am averaging 26 mpg and I drive highway and city.
Heat seats, chrome wheels, sun roof, reclining back seats, roof rack, auto start. the best is the U-Connect Radio and Navigation system.
The only suggestion is covering the gas tank more from the back.
