So you're looking at one of the last of the 1st generation Compasses? After 10 years of manufacturing them, I think Jeep pretty well got it done right. I'd say buy with confidence.
My Wife and I have a 2014 Patriot (sister to the Compass) with the 2.0 and 5-spd like yours and so far no problems at all (120,000 miles). We did a brake job last fall to get it through state inspection, but at 100,000 miles I can't complain. The clutch chatters if I back up on a hill, but I don't do that very often so who cares?
Price looks good too. Good luck with it! And welcome to the forum! Glad you found us.
