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
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!)
