First of all let me say how awesome all of the members of this forum are. Back in the olden days before ridding a motorcycle was a socially acceptable thing Honda motorcycles had an advertising campaign that stated, "You meet the nicest people on a Honda."
I am going to change that up a little and say, "You meet the nicest people driving a Jeep Compass."
The Jeep Compass is a product of our times; it makes economic logic for Jeep to build such a car, it is practical, fun and versatile. There are sayings that make the statement.... one trick pony.... or ...... one hit wonder. Jeep is trying to break out of the mold that created what has become a world class icon. That of being simply Jeep.
I get tired of so called and usually self proclaimed experts saying that the Compass is not a Jeep. I have news for them it is a Jeep. It is 100% capable in every driving situation that the average owner is ever going to encounter.
I have set out to prove to the general public that given the chance, the Compass is a contender. There is another website in which I have created a listing. On this website are, as of this date, over 18,000 listings for Jeeps.
There are well over half a million different cars listed. Each car can be listed and voted on for appearance, and modifications. The modifications I have done to my Compass, recently christened Elijah
, are simple, inexpensive, and easy to do. (They have to be for me to do them.) Elijah is currently rated in the top 10 of all Jeeps listed. This is not something that I set out to do for myself. It was to prove that with a few simple mods and some semi-decent photography the Jeep Compass can be and is being accepted in the automotive community.

I consider this placement a victory for all Jeep Compass owners. Again thanks to the moderators for making this a great place to talk Compass and to every Compass owner who has ever made a post in this forum.
