I bought this car because I needed a small SUV that sat up higher for my husband who because of declining health, has difficulty getting in and out of vehicles. I've had two other Jeeps and both were extremely well made and comfortable. So, I expected the same from the Compass, but sadly it is not! This car doesn't have the simple feature of automatic headlights that should come standard in all cars manufactured after 2010. Also, the drivers seat is the most uncomfortable seat I have ever had in a car. Also, it's NOT a 4x4. Who wants a JEEP that's not a 4x4?
A good looking, dependable cross-over!!!

The vehicle looks like a Jeep and drives like a car. It is a little limited for towing and hauling heavy stuff, but as a fun SUV to drive, it works well. I average about 28 miles per gallon and am currently putting about 40,000 miles a year on it. It's held up well and still looks pretty good. I'd buy another one!!!
Smooth ride, easy handling, easy to get in and out of vehicle, size not too big or too small, Jeep reliability historically, good gas mileage, owned a Jeep Liberty for 12 years before buying a Compass with a sun roof. Not too many unnecessary bells and whistles--just right for my personal requirements. Love my Jeep Compass.
