Do you have anything strange you do ?

Maybe I'm a little weird with my cars but I'm a clean freak about them. I wash them as often as I can and that could be everyday if the time allows. It's harded in fall and winter becasue it gets dark so soon. The one thing that annoys me with my 2009 Compass is the chrome knob on top of the shifter gets fingerprints and smeared from your hand. I keep a microfiber towel in the cup holder and am constantly wiping it off. Does anyone else find this annoying or have anything that they do to theirs that they might seem strange.

I usually leave my rear view mirror on the night setting.

I feel the need to constantly look for new accessories and make mine different from everyone else's. I don't know if that's a good obsession or not.

2009 Jeep Compass North 4X4, Sunburst Orange

Everyday as a child i used to pray to God to give me a jeep. After a couple of years i realized that God did not work that way. So i stole a jeep and asked for HIS forgiveness

That special microfiber towel is a bit eccentric to say the least . . .
Me - I won't let a parking lot jockey park my car, won't even leave my keys with them, rather walk blocks or risk a ticket then let them drive my car.

Maybe we all suffer form "OCD". Obsessive Compass Disorder. You think Obama can get this covered in his healthcare plan?

I seem to be obsessed with wearing out my Compass. I commute with it during the week accumulating 75 miles each day, at least. I'm not really wishing to use it up too soon, it's just my circumstances that drive it.

I tend to park next to landscape "islands" in parking lots. The spaces tend to be a little larger. I park hard up against the curb so that any cars that pull in next to me have as much room as possible to open their doors without hitting my Compass. Also as people can only park on one side it cuts the odds in half.

Well honestly, I just take the floor mats to a spray-it-yourself car wash and I just use 4-oh-9 on my seats with paper towels. Not to good on any of the paneling though.

Run from me if you want to live.

Sometimes I wish we could have "washable" floors, like Jeep-Jeeps, but, then again, carpeting is nice too.

I do that too, but didn't realize it was an obsession until now! Yes, my old Compass is ding free and I hope to keep it that way too. You should see my '04 Neon though, it's the opposite..
