The Jeep Compass is just plain fun to drive. It is a Jeep and has a firm ride that is solid and is confident under any road condition. The interior is not as "plush" as other vehicles to which it is compared but it costs thousands less but it is still well equiped. Those who complain about this car after buying it apparently never bothered to drive it before spending their money. One can't blame the car for their failure to determine whether the car is right for them. Over all it is a fine vehicle it is a Jeep not a luxury sports car.

Don't listen To The "Low Pep Engine" Hype!

Here is my 2 cents on the 2017 Compass. First of all, I'm a long time Jeep user, around 12 of them over the years, so I considered gas millage when shopping for my new Jeep. The Trail Hawk Compass I purchased gets over 30 MPG HWY when driven with MPG in mind. What I mean is no heavy acceleration when passing or climbing hills, just ease into any acceleration scenario. At any rate, I've read reviews where folks complain about the acceleration, but one has to get used to pushing the accelerator with this new Compass. Believe me, if you punch the gas this thing is plenty peppy, it's just a matter of getting used to how much to gas it. They have installed a 4 cylinder engine for good MPG so getting used to the 9 speed transmission and how to punch the pedal takes a while, but this thing has plenty of pep. Also, I don't understand why folks complain about the stop/start feature that the compass boasts.... It works perfectly for fuel savings and can be turned off at the press of a button.... I love my compass and for the MPG I get I'd say it's a great vehicle for any type of travel outside pulling a heavy trailer load, but isn't that why they make trucks? I purchased a factory lifetime bumper to bumper warranty for $3,500, so warranty options are a huge plus. Take a chance on the Compass and enjoy its great sound system, comfort (for SUV), stylish looks, and killer interior, you won't be sorry.

If I Could Do it Over Again.......

If I had another chance at purchasing this vehicle.......1) I'd upgrade to the advanced safety features; as it is there are a few blind spots requiring constant diligent observation. One blind spot is the front windshield pillars. The pillars create a momentary obstruction to pedestrians crossing the pillars.. be vigilant!! That said, other models have similar obstructions. 2) As is common with this genre of vehicle, the vision to the rear both left and right is limited. Jeep needs to include blind spot monitoring in all levels of the New Compass, not only as an option. However I would purchase the option in a moment if I could do it over again. The New Compass provides a solid feel and ride, which is important to me. Getting used to the shift points on my six speed manual (which I opted for) is a normal learning curve. So far other than the listed items, I am pretty well satisfied.. Of course, at 10 days in, I still enjoy looking out my front window at my new Compass; the new car feeling has not yet worn away.....

Finally traded in this pile of junk

To be honest, I absolutely loved this Jeep when I bought it new. I was able to rationalize the gutless engine and absolutely terrible 9-speed that required ramming the gas to the floor to coax a downshift. It really is a rotten engine and transmission combo. Just a dog to drive. But it was a Jeep. And it could go places other crossovers could only dream of. So I loved it, dour interior and poor fit and finish be damned. Then it started living up to the Jeep reputation for poor projected reliability. The Jeep was in the shop a LOT. I could still justify it while the repairs were under warranty, but when Jeep refused to cover items that broke for a second time, after having been repaired once, sometimes twice, while under warranty, I’d had enough. The Jeep looks good and does have respectable off-road capabilities for its class, but it wasn’t ultimately enough to overcome the terrible reliability and complete lack of support from Jeep and the dealership when fixing defective parts with new defective parts that were destined to break again. And once factory warranty has expired, even the extended warranty I bought wouldn’t cover the cost. So at 55,000 I traded it in on a Mazda CX-30 Turbo. Wow. Night and day. Don’t miss the Jeep at all and will never buy another. And this is coming from someone who has owned 7 different Jeeps in my life. Poor quality and even poorer support from Jeep and the dealership cost them a lifelong customer.

I was shopping for a KIA Sorrento or the smaller version; the sitting is not comfortable, I pass by a Jeep Dealer, liked the shape and size of the vehicle and the seating was excellent; price comparable , big difference the doors are heavy, you feel secure. the KIA's , and other brands are not.
