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.
Cons: nothingIt's a very nice family vehicle.
Pros: easy to drive good control
Cons: poor quality interior featuresgreat driving, but windows squeak, seats hard to adjust, no air in back makes for uncomfortable ride. not to mention i knock my shins against the bottom of the dash when i get in or out! Hard to accelerate . Just feels a bit like a clunky toy car.
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.
Pros: the seat moves up in height
Cons: cant think of a thing
Advice: buy it!this is a GREAT small suv! i have always driven a vw, but was convinced to buy an suv by my husband and father. this has respectable gas milage for the class and pretty acurate to the sticker it rides great and gets great pick up if you can drive a stick (everyone should!) my fwd was great in the ice and snow this year!
Pros: great ride and mileage
Cons: rear and right rear quarter vision
Advice: I enjoy mine, I think most small SUV drivers wouldThe CVT took some getting used to, but now I wouldn't go for anything else.I like the 'Rubbermaid' interior, it's easy to maintain and i suspect will outlast the exterior surfaces.
