It's not 100 percent safe . Drive shaft constantly

Electrical problems. Bad switch in drive steering. Drive shafts always going bad. Ride bad in high wind , rainy and snowy conditions I have paid more for fixing the car since I own it


Biggest piece of garbage I have ever owned

Never ever buy anything Chrysler, bought it with 70000 drove it off the lot,2days go by engine light comes on,needs new intake manifold ,drove for a while all of sudden crank sensor goes then cam sensor by the way I replace .it now has 118000 and having exact same thing dealer says not their problem..


Reliable, Capable, Fun to Drive

I have owned many cars and trucks over the years but none have been as functional and fitting to my lifestyle than my Jeep Compass. It does everything I want it to do. It gets through any weather. Plenty of space. Enough power to pass and merge onto the highway but the engine is still getting 30 mpg. I own a 2009 and I am not as big of a fan of the exterior styling... I think the newer ones look much more attractive, but that's just a personal preference. Interior design is standard Jeep. I LOVE the fact that it has an AUX port and a house hold 125amp power outlet. It's not the most forgiving vehicle on bumps in the road, hence my rating on comfort, but that is a typical with Jeeps. My compass is a manual transmission with over 165k miles and it is still going strong. I believe it will be reliable well over 200k miles. I would highly recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for a small 4x4 that still gets great MPG.


worth the money

I've got the Jeep Compass in Aug 2009 and it's been so far the best car i ever have, good on gas, roomy and fast on the highway


Great Car for the Money

I have a 2009 Jeep Compass has approx 16K miles on it with manual transmission and 2.4L engine. Interior is adequate, like the exterior and ride and reliability very good so far. Mileage has been approx 25 with a/c running and close to 30 without. Ride is more like a truck but overall handling is good. Feels very solid on the road, will keep this one for awhile.


good pay

i have had my compass 2 months so far the only problen is a moon roo leak. it ride like a jeep. its fun around town, not crayz about the highway ride, but its a jeep not caddy. next time i'll get an auto trans and 4x4. i have a 2wd limited. after the snow we got this year 4x4 would be nice. im getting 28.5 mpg on avg. i got a great deal at $16,000 with 50000 miles. next time i get a jeep i hope they create something newer,better and outstanding. the compass fales short of that, but it does a great job for daily use and it looks beter than all the same looking suv's out there.
