2017 Jeep Compass SUV All New Trailhawk 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 9A)


Review

My initial review at 9,000 miles was fairly critical. I had some condensation issues in the daytime running light and felt somewhat let down as far as build quality goes. I was not expecting to have these kinds of issues this early. Of course, Jeep fixed the light under warranty. Fast forward a year, and I have to admit to liking this vehicle quite a bit. The fit and finish are good, there are no squeaks or rattles, and everything is working well. The 4-wheel drive capability is nothing short of astonishing. You will not find another vehicle in this class that has a fraction of the off-road capability of the Compass. If that’s at all important to you, then you’ve really only one choice at this size. I absolutely love the rugged styling and I receive many positive comments from random people in parking lots. If I have one complaint, and it’s a big one, it’s the terrible reluctance of the 9-speed to downshift. The transmission is programmed for EPA estimates and not spirited driving. I get around the issue by doing a lot of “manual” shifting with the auto-stick. It’s a little frustrating that Jeep doesn’t add a sport mode for better transmission performance. I’d sacrifice a couple of MPG to not have to manually downshift so often. I keep hoping that Jeep will offer a software update to the transmission to make it less lazy on the downshifts. Come on, FCA! You have the technology and you’d put a lot of smiles on Compass owners’ faces. That said, I really do like this vehicle and believe that its positives easily outweigh its negatives.

2017 Jeep Compass SUV All New Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 9A)


Review

I love this car! Drives heavy like a luxury vehicle and has a lot of premium finishes but didn't break my budget. Some of the technology features take a little while to get used to and I don't get as great of gas milage as I was expecting (but I rarely drive on the highway and have a hilly commute everyday) but it's been a great choice so far. Everyone that has ridden in the backseat say it's very comfortable and there is lots of room. The cargo space is smaller than I expected but since the back seats fold flat it hasn't been an issue at all.

Review

Not all compasses are created equal. I opted for undercoating, was given a loaner which was brand new and exact model and it was great. Not so with the one I purchased. Put 400 miles on both the loaner and my car. I CAN TELL THE DIFFERENCE! The car I got has issues with driver door panel warpage, wind noise/cabin noise and engine/exhaust noise, none present in the loaner vehicle. I could not swap them out.. The gas mileage stinks. 16-17 mpg when advertised average is 25mpg. The muffler is getting noisier and it is brand new. Heard there is a recall on it but nothing official yet. The dealer is evasive and is just plain lying about the noise issues. Not done pursuing remedies with the dealership or Jeep Chrysler. I hope to get some resolution. I am just sick about this. I am disabled and being taken advantage of. The Chrysler Jeep people are helping me with this, but the dealer is "independently owned and operated", which I have heard 100 times. The best we can do is discourage people from buying Jeep as there should not be these problems on a new car. Quality control? What's that?. BUY A DIFFERENT BRAND! In mourning.......

Review

I recently test drove a 2017 Jeep Compass Trailhawk. I wanted a small, all-around SUV that would especially get me up skiing. Took it for my usual test drive up I-70 to see how it would perform on the uphill grade. With the pedal to the metal I could barely manage 70mph. Thought I was going to have to get out and push. Absolutely anemic. This vehicle might work in city traffic and for flat-landers but in the mountains, forget it.
