I have owned my car for 3 months now. I was a little hesitant to buy it at first because I had read that the seats were somewhat uncomfortable. As someone with lower back problems I can honestly say that this could not be farther from the truth. The seats are in fact very comfortable and provide plenty of support. I took a thousand mile road trip and not once did I feel uncomfortable nor the need to stop somewhere just to stretch. I LOVE my Compass. When I was first looking for a car, I accidentally saw it and let me assure you, it was love at first sight. I Love the way it looks and everyone has told me that it's a beautiful car. It gets between 25-28 city miles to the gallon, depending on my driving. For the most part it averages 27. The interior is actually very roomy; I've had four other adults car pool with me and not one complained about being over crowded(this were family members and they would have said something). The car handles pretty good too. Its a nice, smooth enjoyable ride. This car is worth every penny I paid for it. So far it has not given me any problems and I did take it to the mechanics so that they could do a thorough inspection on it. The maintenance on it is also very simple. For the most part is oil changes until you get to 60K miles. I bought the life time tire rotation and balance along with teh lifetime wheel alignment, to keep it running at its optimum level. I would 100% reccomend this car to everyone, although quite honestly, I enjoy being one of the few people who has one. I can honestly say that I am very, very happy with this purchase and I know that I will keep this car as long as I can. Thank You Jeep for making a car that does not look like a box. I LOVE my Compass!

The Most Practical, reliable Automobile

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.

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.

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".

Nothing Great, But Good Value (2007 4WD Automatic)

by from Chicago, IL on July 22, 2012

It's hard for me to judge this vehicle because I've only owned it from brand new through the first 37,000 miles. I never went off-roading, nor have I had many opportunities to test the 4WD. I found out on my own after having purchased it that it only takes mid-grade gasoline. It drags and struggles when I put regular unleaded. As expected from a small engine SUV, it does struggle to speed up. It handles surprisingly well and is the perfect car for novice drivers. It came with all-weather tires and performs adequately in inclement weather. It's a practical vehicle, but it's not fun to drive. I bought it because for $22,600, I got a fuel efficient SUV with 4WD and automatic transmission. Whereas for $1,000 more, the 2007 Ford Escape only offers a FWD manual.
