Totally Reliable

This jeep compass has been well maintained and super cherished. The only reason for selling this car is that job position will be relocated soon.


Trying to find my newest vehicle to purchase

This Jeep was nice enough but was not what I was looking for in a new purchase I could only compare it to one other Jeep I owned and even though it was nice enough I felt it did not compare I could see it working well for other families and people just was not to my liking.


To many problems for a 2012

Where do I begin? This vehicle is obviously a lemon. The transmission has died, the suspension system is garbage, the gas tank is so tiny that you have to keep refilling. I absolutely hate I spent real money on this vehicle. It's the second worst vehicle I've owned. The worst was a Dodge Neon, which needed a 3 head gaskets before 36,000 miles.



I bought this vehicle because it was supposed to have the same motor & tranny as my 200. This thing was a horrid xxx! I had to have it towed more than once for stupid stuff. Getting onto the interstate was terrifying. It had no get up & go. It acted like it had to think about going. Then there is the irony that it's called a compass & didn't have one. I hated this vehicle- I'd rather drive an explosive pinto!


Love my jeep

Best car ever this us my second jeep, great interior and drives smoothly love the way it drives lots of space great on gas comfortable seats


Perfect vehicle

Amazing Compact SUV It gets great gas mileage both in town and on the highway, is comfortable to travel long distances, is reliable for back country, can tow 2000 pounds, and is amazing in the snow!


very nice suv

this jeep was for my wife see loves it it not to big but very roomy and see likes that it sits up high and that it is 4+4


Great Vehicle

This has been a great vehicle overall, takes very little gas. This vehicle is so easy to drive and park. Great little SUV. I would recommend This Jeep to everyone.


Very Reliable, Sleek, and Stylish

This car has met all of my needs. Very spacious interior for a compact SUV. Can carry quite a bit so it is great for vacations or if you just like to have a lot of stuff with you. Overall a great vehicle and would highly recommend to anyone looking for an entry level SUV!


Nice Cer

This is a good smaller size suv. I like it. If you have more than 3 kids then I would not recommend because it is small inside. But the space is prefect if you want to use it to haul something, the seats fold down and get you great space
