Compass Enthusiasts?

So what, are there like four or five of us that like these things enough to find a place to post their thoughts on these vehicles? I know that there is much spammer interest here, but that's not what this forum is about. We can discuss other Jeeps too if that helps, just no Spam/Scam links please!

I am a Compass Enthusiast!!

This is my first Jeep, I have always owned smaller cars and a couple of mini-vans over the years.
This vehicle has all the practicality of a small car with decent mileage nice ride, but it also has the advantages of a larger sport utility.
I just bought a trailer and installed the trailer tow package myself along with a class 3 hitch so I'm good for 2000 lbs. The trailer I bought is 1500 pounds so with the added things you take camping with you I will be at the 2000lb mark. Interested to see how it handles with the added weight and how the mileage will change.
There are one or two other forums I am part of that are pretty good as well but they are offshoots of the main forums for the "real" jeeps.
I to wish this forum was more active there are enough Compass' out there now since they have been around for about four years now.
Looking forward to reading more posts soon.

Wes

We used to have a more lively group, and lots of interest, BEFORE all the creepy scammers began invading the sight.
With a little luck we may get it back on the Rubicon Trail.
BTW . . . I did not get my Compass with the intention of "off roading" but last weekend I did get off the beaten path visiting one of Quebec's natural reserves, the park dirt road I was following was not very often travelled and very poorly maintained. Barely kept open, dangerous spots marked with ribbons hanging from branches. Anyway with no way to turn arround I pushed onward, up and down and around, nearly two hours in second gear, sometimes first. The only others I saw were two 4x4 ATV's bombing through the woods. The Compass was great never needed to go to 4WD full time.

For me, I have always liked Jeeps! I have owned a few over the years, and the Compass works well for me as a Rural/Urban commuter. I will add that I like the look of the Compass too.

The more I look at the compass I sort of wish it had it's own identity i know they wanted to keep the jeep look but, then they started to give it, it's own edge throughout the body would like to a different front end.

I think its a sharp looking vehicle. Many people assume that they all have V8's and are all 4WD. I tell them no its just a 4 cylinder that is pretty great on fuel but it has the room inside of a larger vehicle.

I like the Compass because it IS unique. If you take the badges off 99 percent of the SUV's out there you would be hard pressed to tell a Chevy from a Honda. The only other unique SUV out there is the Toyota FJ. But what is up with the white roof on those things?

Time for a rag top

The Compass has the greatest styling since the original '48 Willy's Jeepster.
I would love to see an artist's rendering of our Compass as a soft-top.
I think it would be great as a cabriolet.

Compass is my 3rd Jeep (2 Cherokees). Chose the Compass because:
1- It's a Jeep
2- Fuel economy (I've been getting about 30mpg so far)
3- It's a Jeep
4- Unique styling
5- It's a Jeep
6- It's a lot of fun to drive (Don't know what people complain about. The 2.4 VVT with the CVT is plenty powerful.)
7- IT'S A JEEP!

I think that that REALLY sums things up.
It all adds up to a great ride.

My Compass is my first Jeep, though I briefly owned a used Willy's Overland several years ago. But it had many problems and my mechanic told me that I would be tinkering with this vehicle on and off for a long period of time. I find my '07 Compass Sport 4X4 fun to drive and quite economical. I would definitiely buy another Jeep and when my wife is ready to part with her Lexus IS250 I would like her to get a Jeep.
