hi, i'm just about buying one of these beauties...but i have read (wikipedia and some websites) something about being discontinued, and i'm now having second thoughts because of that.
Does anyone know anything about it? I read it has to do with the fact that fiat has 25% stake in jeep...
btw: i live in spain, and the model i want to buy is the new compass 2.2 crd sport edition.
I think you would be satisfied with the new Compass. I picked mine up a few months ago and have not been disappointed in my decision at all. True, some vehicles get discontinued quickly after the initial introduction or after a refresh, but that is what makes them unique sometimes.
Look at it this way, if something ever happened to your Compass, most of the vehicle has the same parts as the old compass, you could probably find some parts at a junk yard if needed. If you need headlights, the Grand Cherokee has the same headlights, from what me and a few others can gather.
I heard about that info shortly after
I bought our 2011 Compass, but I was not worried or anything because it is a good vehicle and well worth the price. Even if I knew about the discontinuation before we got it, we still would have purchased it because it is a good little vehicle that suits our needs very well and has unique styling (which actually was the main reason for purchasing over a Ford Escape).
It is certainly your decision to get one, but you will see that many people on this site really enjoy their Compass and are glad to have gotten it instead of something else.
If you do decide to get it, please post pics and keep us up to date if you start doing any mods to it!
