"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."
"The compass makes my third Jeep and I will say it doesn't compare to the Grand Cherkee's quality but it does get better gas mileage and that is a huge plus since I drive two hours a day. It is a comfortably ride. The pick up is fine for a 4 cylinder. Overall I will say it is a solid B+ vehicle."
