Was A Good Value And Sporty Ride. — Great vehicle for a younger person. Auto 6 CD changer plays hours of uninterrupted tunes. Automatic transmission with manual (stick) is fun to drive and makes hills or passing a breeze. Just wish it was quieter, too much road noise for an old person like me.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Mid-size. Handles great, 6-CD changer, warms up fast in winter.  Has the automatic transmission with manual (stick).  Used it in the mountains and did awesome.

Cons: Don't like the road noise.  I'm older and was expecting a quieter ride.  Husband is too tall to ride comfortably in passenger seat unless it's almost in back seat.  His knees won't go under the dash.  It loses some "get up and go" in summer when ac is running.

The Baby Blue Behemoth (jeep Compass) — My Jeep Compass is a hideous baby blue but it has a great Chrysler inline 4 cylinder engine that is efficient and very reliable. My version has a 5 speed and it is a blast to row through the gears and cruise. Inside, there is cloth that at nearly 70,000 miles is intact and very comfortable. It's a great car minus the paint, that is the only thing holding it down.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 5-Speed transmission

Cons: The color

My Jeep Compass — Performance - Runs smoothly, accelerates easily, great brakes Build Quality - The door rattles because the automatic windows were added after the car was made Appearance - It's a hot car, I love it Cost of Ownership - Worth every penny! Fun Factor - It's a 4x4 so off-roading, here I come!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It seats 5 so there's always enough room for my friends! and there's a big trunk...

Cons: Nothing!

Compass — My new Jeep is so cute...it just seems to look happy. CVT lags sometimes, but I like being able to manually control the ratios to get it to jump. Not enjoying the fact that I slip out on wet surfaces. Not even sure why this happens.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Blinding headlights

Cons: jumpy traction control

I Don't See The Appeal For This Jeep. — Before I knew all that much about American cars I thought this was the Wrangler's replacement. Well I was wrong since after driving it I knew exactly what this car is...a slightly bigger Caliber. There's absolutely nothing different between the two other than the badge and the body. The interior is literally identical to the Caliber so its a bad interior. Its full of cheap plastic and has cheap seats. To drive...its like a Caliber, slow. As a Jeep this one does not have off-road capabilities so its just a regular car. With the heavier body...all it does is consume more fuel than the already thirsty Caliber. Save your money...if you want a Caliber buy a Caliber, or better yet just walk since you might get there quicker.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It doesn't look like a Caliber.

Cons: Its a bigger Caliber which is a bad car

Pretty Good Car; Avoid The Cvt. — We have a 2008 Compass FWD w/ the 2.0 4cyl engine. It has the Jatco CVT, which is probably my least favorite part of the car. There is a lag with the CVT when accelerating; the whole thing just feels unpolished. Also...why does a car with only 158 hp have torque steer? Acceleration is only adequate, anyway. It would probably be more peppy with the 2.4 4cyl and the 5 speed manual. Handling is reasonable for a CUV...though there is a lot of road noise. Build quality is just ok; there are a lot of cheap trim pieces. There are a disconcerting number of rattles inside the car and it only has 30k miles. Not good... There is a good amount of room inside, considering it's not a very large car.

Pros: Good gas mileage (about 27-28 mpg average); reasonable styling; good interior space

Cons: Leisurely acceleration; Dim-witted CVT; Questionable durability and build quality
