I once owened a Jeep Cheerokee and downsized to the Compass, What a great desicion. I am very pleased with the way the compass drives and handles long travels. The size is perfect for a tall person the interior is at a comfortable hight for my 5'11"husband and the seats all adjust. The hatch can fit luggage for 4 or more grown travelers. This car was a perfect choice and you should consider purchasing it. I believe the Tahoes and larger SUVs are over rated and very costly. Good luck and enjoy the compass. :)

When we started car shopping, my husband tried to get me into a Ford Escape. I test drove 2 and didnt like the feel or handling but I wasn't giving up. I went one day to a dealership by myself and told the salesman what I wanted. He asked me what I would be using it for, how much driving I would be doing, kids, work, ect. He didn't bring me a Ford Escape to test drive, he brought me a Jeep Compass. I got in, drove it up and down the highway, and MAN! I love this vehicle!! I somehow convienced my husband to go look at it and the next thing I know, we are bringing it home. I have had it for 3 months now and I am still in awe of the SUV! It handles great, so comfortable inside, my 11 month old loves it, it has alot of space to store stuff (I recently bought a bike and kids trailer and they both fit in the back!) It also has a ton of little cubby spaces. I wouldn't trade my Jeep Compass for anything... unless it was another Jeep Compass! 5 stars from this stay at home mom!!!

I now have 28,000 miles on my 2007 Jeep Compass Sport (purchased new in 2008) 4X4 with the 2.4L engine and a manual trannie. I'm happy to say I hsven't had any mechanicall problems with the vehicle. Reviewers have given this vehicle poor to fair reviews. I don't believe they ever owned one. I have driven through one of the worst winters in the Northeast without any difficulties.. I really enjoy driving this small suv.

I cam across my Compass in a swap out with a customer as I was looking for a versatile shop vehicle and they were looking for a sports car. I researched the Compass in depth and have to say I am more than pleased with it. As far as breakdowns go, all vehicles breakdown, but parts needed are very affordable for this vehicle compared to the many I repair everyday. ASE Master Mechanic says, "buy the vehicle that suits your needs and you won't be disappointed".

Jeep Compass

by from Jersey City, NJ on March 29, 2010

I wish I could keep this car forever, but it doesn't make sense to have a car in the city. Great car in all weather conditions. Handles snow flawlessly. Great mileage for an SUV.

Decent little vehicle

I wanted something that would give me decent gas mileage, but still have the utility of a small SUV ... all, of course, at a good price. The Compass achieved. And now that I've taken it on a few longer trips (500 + miles in a day), I like the gas mileage, and the comfort is good. Only hit I have against this vehicle is that, for a 'Limited,' it sure doesn't have a lot of features. No Bluetooth/Sat radio. No self-dimming mirror. No chrome on the outside. Looks pretty plain. But it functions and is a joy to drive. So far, it's been worth the purchase. We've yet to see about the long-term reliability.

The brand new 2007 Jeep Compass I recently purchased has had problems since the day I drove it off the lot. One major problem was with the tire pressure monitoring system which took multiple attempts to repair, including a call to the Chrysler engineer that actually developed the system. Another defect was with the coil spring in the steering wheel column, which is the device that deploys the driver's side airbag & has been rattling incessantly before & after attempting to repair it. Now I'm uncomfortable driving it b/c I'm fearful that a malfunction within the airbag system might occur. There've also been minor problems such as small rubber stoppers falling out of the sunroof & connectors in the volume controls actually coming disconnected. It looks cool but definately is not worth it!!!
