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?
I was looking for a roomy car to accommodate my 6'1" 250+ husband and my growing family of 5'9" + kids but the main purpose of this car is for my 45 minute commute. I love the car. It has just enough cargo room in the back, ample leg room in the front and back seats, and with the manual transmission I chose, it's fun to drive. The only annoyance I run into with regularity is that the "unlock" button is only on the driver door in this model. Passengers who want to unlock have to reach across.
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.
