    2008 Jeep Compass

    will not buy another one

    Pros: heated seats

    Cons: small gas tank, milage wasn't what was expected.

    While living in town the jeep was fine, but commuting to school the small gas tank was a problem along with the gas milage not as expected.

    2008 Jeep Compass - Sport 4x4

    Pros: Front end / Front seat folds flat / Reclining rear seats

    Cons: Overall Interior

    Advice: Don't buy it for comfort or standard features.

    Maybe it's because I'm spoiled with the Dodge crew cabs we've had over the past 5 or 6 years, but we couldn't afford to drive one anymore w/ the gas prices the way they are. I just wish we could've found a way to afford a replacement with more comfort and user-friendly features. We opted for the Compass because of the gas mileage/4x4. (We got the Sport 26E Pkg). Other than that, I can't get the driver's seat into a comfortable position; the stereo system sounds just like our cheap boombox; the arm rest is hard/small/difficult to use/no coin holder/keeps you from getting to your cups in the holders; the blind spots in the back (we're keeping the seats folded down because of that); can't even fit a compact umbrella in any of the door pockets. Don't get much for your $ anymore.

    2008 Jeep Compass - Sport FWD

    Pros: Fold down seats, roomy interior, excellent storage

    Cons: Bad blind spots from rear corners of the compass

    Advice: Excellent truck that drives like a car!

    Excellent small suv, but drives like a car! Much room and storage, fold down seate are excellent to carry more cargo, pets, etc. Only problem, slight one, is the bad blind spots from the rear corners of the car.
