Good bye Jeep

After 4 years and 2 Jeeps (Patriot then Compass) we're moving on....

Got approved today for a new car, so next week wed/thurs will be picking up our 2013 ford edge sel, same as this one:



Got an awesome trade price for the Compass and 0.9% credit, couldn't pass it up, wanted an Edge for a long time... Will miss the Jeeps, might check in now and then to see how it's going here, seems quiet lately!

Wow, well sorry to hear you're letting the Compass go, but for the deal you're getting, can't say as I blame you, the Edge is a nice ride so congrats on that and definitely don't be a stranger around here so do be sure to check in from time to time!

Thanks guys, will do Cherokee...

Compass is gone now as of Thursday, loving the Edge so far. Will be going to auction soon if not already, apparently for $18k but they gave me $19,700. I miss the sunroof but that's all so far, no snow to test out yet but I hope it copes ok (FWD). Good luck and happy holidays.

Ok so a small update on this after 5 months; the Edge is only FWD and I really missed the 4x4 over the winter, got good snow tires (Geolander) but not as stable or competent as the Jeep.

Fuel economy is also hit and miss, on a highway run its great (about 33 mpg) but around town its about 18mpg

Plus points are the interior quality and overall ride quality of the car, plus its a turbo and much quicker/smoother than the Jeep

Thank you very much for the update!!

It is really good to have a good opinion and a comparison between the jeep and other cars by real people in the real world. Completely different from what we read in magazines.

Enjoy your ride!! With spring coming you won't miss the 4x4 so soon
