Junkiest car ever owned

I think this vehicle is a worthless piece of scrap. Never buy Mopar again. Absolute waste of my money and my time. Could of bought a bike.


Decent... but not great

Purchased this car at 93,000 miles, was told by used dealer that there were no current issues or signs of a future issue, even after shop check. Transmission blew at 98,000, and have had issues with the modules and computers fizzling out. Muffler never truly secured and knocks frequently, regardless of preventative maintenance. Have taken a trip with it since Trans replacement, ran well. Overall, when it’s running and available for use, a solid car to get you from point A to B.


Owed my Jeep for 10 years, love it

Best vehicle I have owned. Awesome in the snow. Comfortable, roomy, drives great and fun to drive. 4x4 optional lever. Great gas mileage 27 MPG. Looks great too. Reliable.


Huge waste of money !!!!

I bought this car used, first there's an issue with the sunlight and it literally rains in my car through my headlamp and my interior is soaked on the inside of the roof stained to xxxx! Now for repairs, I had the front struts replaced twice the tie rods, the control arms all upper and lower and two of them twice, the alternator, bolts and lug nuts on most the tires, the axle the axle nut, the leaking in my roof coming in the car shorted my control panel (havac controls) and my drivers side airbag sensor this car I bought at about 11000 4 years ago and all of the major work has been done all at once, oh and when my wheel bearing went bad there was only a rubbing noise like a caliper rubbing on the break mind you I have had the wheel bearing replaced twice. And I'm sure I missed other things that I have had to repair in this car and I have no nice way to say that this car is the biggest literal piece of sh@t I have ever owned or driven.. and I suggest if you want to get violently xxxxx by the cost of car repairs at least buy a car that's worth saving.. like a classic


Could be better

Has so many blind spots!!! Have had tire problems, even w/new tires bad rims.this has been going on for years. Now strange lighting issues w/blinkers. the right front only works if the head lights are off.


Great value

Good fuel economy, and handles well. Great value and will last me for years. Regular maintenance every 5,000 with full synthetic oil. 8-10 quality of vehicle


Dependable versatile vehicle for all.

Our compass was dependable. Heard stories of transmission problems from many expert mechanics. Ours did not have a problem yet! Only complaint, hard to clean between the seats and console. Very good 4wd in heavy snow!


Awesome car for the price

This car met all my needs. It drives and handles nicely. Good pickup at start. Very roomy and cargo area is great. It's a quiet ride, and a pleasure to drive.


Gas saver, comfortable, gets me from A to Z

No need for anymore in NYC, saves tons of gas, fits in most parking spots, easy to drive, veey visible from a distance, sits an entire family


Purchased new, now over 250K

I purchased my Jeep new in 2010 and now has over 250 K miles. She has given only two problems. Throttle body replaced at 95K, and wheel bearing ball joint replacement. Now I am skier and this Jeep is in salt and cold every winter, it has been axle deep in water, I tow more weight than I should and I use her most every day. She has 2.4 L which I would recommend over the 2.0L. This is NOT a serious off road Jeep, but if most of you driving is on pavement, with snow and light off road she will do it well. My highway mileage is 30 mpg with 5 speed manual and AMSOIL motor oil. What don't I like, well don't tell her but the front end styling has never suited me. The new ones look better. I'm going for 400K and then go for Jeep pickup. To Chrysler : thank you for this Compass ?
