Should I Buy a Compass?

I am looking at a 2012 Compass with Navi and 62,000 kms. I am also looking at a 2012 Kia Rondo with only 36,000 kms and another two years of bumper to bumper warranty on it. The Jeep is about $5000 more. Both vehicles have good reviews. I'm sure everyone here will say buy the Jeep since you all own one. Was hoping I might get some objectivity. Thoughts?

They are completely different vehicles. I think the only way to answer your question is to know what your needs are.

The compass/patriot are great cars for winter driving for example (I'm talking about the AWD). I live in Toronto and go deer hunting every year during fall and winter in Pennsylvania and never got stuck. It's a pretty roomy car that fits all my gear, dog and a couple deer on the way back also counting with a decent gas mileage

You need to do more reading and research on your question. But as said there is no comparision between any 4x4 and a 2WD Van, NON at all.

Reliability etc is quite another story.
