    My car

    I don't know why these Jeeps always get low ratings in reviews. This is the forth Jeep I've owned and it's the best yet. I can't afford the top end Cherokee's, but value for money, I think the Compass 2014 is a real winner. I've got the petrol automatic and it's comfortable, high spec and quiet despite what reviews claim. Yes, the interior is not as classy as some others, but it's a 4x4 Jeep, not a posh saloon and when you look at the purchase price compared with BMW, Merc, Range Rover etc, it's so much cheaper. So what do you expect? Frankly I'd rather pay less and enjoy the reliability and security I've come to enjoy with my Jeeps, especially in the winter with the selectable 4-wheel drive.

    I've done less than 1000 miles so far, so it's too early to comment on running costs, but at 30mpg I'm getting around 300 miles for about £55 quid at todays prices. All I can say is in my experience of Jeeps on and off over 18 years, they are getting better and better. They have character and presence and I would have one every time over the the competition - even if money was no object! Please if you are a Chelsea tractor driver, look elsewhere!

    My car

    We brought the Jeep Compass as a replacement for a Jeep Patriot, it has a very good spec and the 2.2crd engine drives well, the MPG is good with between 38-44 MPG on average. In 70th Annivesary spec it looks good and the neat touchs to seats and dash make it stand out, although the chestnut trim on seats can look a bit bright in the mornings. On motorways it drives well and has good road manners and can accomadate four people with ease, the only downside is lack of tyre pressure sensors that the Patriot Overland had which made life easier, we also changed the headlight bulbs to upgraded zenon type which has made night driving better in bad weather, thats the only issue we had.

    Well done Jeep another fantastic product

    My car

    Having owned a Grand Cherokee for 4 years with Costs of £800.30 for 3 services and an MOT and £543.00 for tyres and been very impressed as a reliable quiet car with great towing ability, I changed to a Compass 70th Anniversary 2.2CRD.

    My main complaint with the Grand Cherokee was its thirst. I got about 23 mpg and could get 30mpg on a long motorway run keeping to 60mph. The Compass does between 38 and 44 mpg in similar circumstances. Now that is run in the engine is much quieter and smoother and has a good gearchange and closely spaced top 3 ratios.

    I find it easy to get into and has a good driving position if you like to sit up. Lack of column length adjustment is not an issue. (If you want to lie down & be a boy racer it may be, but you shouldn't be looking at a Compass!)
