Pleasantly surprised with the Jeep Compass. It has a much better turning radius than I expected with a 4wd. I travel 200-300 miles per day and cannot complain about the comfort being in this vehicle after 4-8 hours per day. It took a bit to get used to the 4 cylinder engine. I previously owned a 6 cylinder and there is a significant difference in the get up and go on the highway. However, the lack of highway acceleration is tempered by the true grit when it comes to the off-road capability of this little go-getter. It takes on those steep hills and rugged terrain driveways with barely a tap on the gas pedal. Only complaint is the small gas tank. For someone who doesn't travel as much as I do daily, the gas tank is fine but for those who travel distances you will need to stop and refill the 10-11 gallons capacity tank more often than I like to. Best fuel mileage to date is 34 mpg on highway. I'm averaging 28-30 mpg on the country miles. I don't travel in city areas so not able to provide city mpg. The ground clearance is helpful off-road. The interior is very roomy. I have four grown sons. Three can fit comfortably in the back seat with plenty of legroom even when the front seat is all the way back. There is also a good amount of storage in the rear for shopping. I'm only 5'2" but the Jeep Compass is a great fit for both me and my 6' husband. I like not having to sit up in the seat to be able to look over the hood. I also found there are very few blind spots from the driver perspective. When the passenger seat is all the way back I do have to lean back to see out the rear side window but it is manageable. Overall, so far so very happy with my Jeep Compass! 6,000 miles in 5 weeks and looking forward to the next 100,000 miles!

2012 Compass Latitude. Love the vehicle but after 10 days and 600 miles had to be towed into dealer, possible power steering fluid leak. We are a one car family and need a reliable car. I traded in my 06 hhr and it never had to be towed anywhere. Hope I didn't make a mistake. We wanted the four wheel drive. Let's see how the dealer handles this.
