Went for a little drive today.

This morning I decided to take my Compass for a little drive. I drove up to Door County here in Wisconsin. (Beautiful drive, by the way) Round trip was about 240 miles. I averaged 29.6 MPG (twice what I was getting with my '94 Blazer). Now, let me just add that I had no problems with acceleration, this thing has some pep! The only disappointment I had the whole trip was that I saw only one Compass along the way. ( to the red Jeep Compass in Algoma)

I soooo love this Jeep!!!

Thank you, it was nice.

You know, I've read a number of threads on this forum, where some mentioned the lousy gas mileage or the lack of power to the motor and CVT, and yes, I've only had my Compass for a little over a month now, but I just don't see it. The lowest mileage I've seen was 22.2 MPG (figured manually by the way) and that is with my 2.4L automatic. Granted, many of the complaints were about earlier year models. Maybe they got something right in the 2012 model. (Might be too early to say that yet) If this is the case, it's a shame this fine vehicle is going to come to an end.
