"I've had my Compass for 3 weeks and am falling in love with it more each day. I had a 05 Malibu that was totalled and this is my first Jeep. It's built sturdy and no frills--much like I would expect of a Jeep. I live in the country and wanted 4WD for the snow and I don't want a lot of soft vinyl or cloth that can't be wiped down. My Malibu got around 26 MPG and so far, that's about what I'm getting in the Compass. I am hoping that things keep going as they are with the vehicle."
"Bought for my wife 11 months ago. Has 9000 miles, with no repairs needed yet. Clutch was notchy at first, but seems to have smoothed out. Good power with 5 speed, and good and improving gas mileage. Getting 26 combined mileage - very good for the ride, safety, and power. I leased, but am going to buy the lease now that we have had the car about a year."
