I have to test drive it to see the power, but I'm not that concerned. Anything will seem powerful since I've been driving my 88 horsepower Mazda Precidia for the past 5 years!! LOL...
The only thing I would really really want is Navigation, but for $3,000 extra, it hardly seems worth it
I'm kind of torn though, with all the options I want, this Jeep comes to about $30,000 CDN whereas I can get a Mitsubishi Outlander for just a bit over that and I love that interior.. I hope I can get a good deal on the Jeep and that will convince me!
The one we ordered came in at 28,750 and I negotiated 27,200.
Limited, 4X4, CVT, 6 disc, boston acoustics, uconnect, full sized spare, convenence and security group.
Opted out of the chrome wheels (personally don't like chrome, and the non ones in my opinion look better) and opted out of the sunroof again, as it isn't my cup of joe - that held the price down like 1,600.
If you want nav, ask if it will delay the deal as I have never seen one with it, I thought it was late availability.
When I checked out the outlander the xls (similar option level) would have worked out to 34k. At 27,200 cdn IMO the compass was a hell of a bargain..
p.s. as stated in my review, I'd not go for the 6 disc changer cause you lose the mp3player jack and to me that is more important than 6 discs.
