Got rid of the Compass

Well I'm sad to report I traded the Compass away. The squeaky front end that the dealer didn't fix didn't help things, but we got rid of the Compass because it just wasn't a good fit for our vehicle needs anymore.

I still think the Compass is an unbeatable value for the amount of features you get. I'll miss the heated seats in the coming months. I bought my Compass on August 18,2006 and traded it on August 25,2008. Put on just over 30,000 km in that time (18K miles). I got a decent trade-in value (about a grand over black book value).

We traded it on an 08 Dodge Ram. We plan on buying a camper trailer next spring and the Compass just can't tow 5,000 lbs So we thought we'd get the truck now and have it paid off before it's time to buy a camper too. I test drove a few used trucks (Ford & Dodge) and just wasn't impressed with the little problems and "unknowns" of buying used. I like the new GM truck interiors but the price was higher. Dodge is having a serious sale on in-stock 08 trucks and they got me.

Of course I'll still be around, I will still run this site, it's not going anywhere. I just may post a bit less.
