40cm?

Wow . . . I heard we were to get between 10 and 20cm, but 40cm, curses.
Hate shoveling, but skiing in December, that's something I remember from my childhood days. Hope it is good, no trouble getting there with the Compass.
Enjoy!

Loved
my 2007 Compass 5-Speed, Limited!

Today's forecast in Regina says it's -32 and feels like -38 with the wind chill. (For you americans it's -25 and -36 with the wind.) Good day to stay home and watch tv.

2009 Jeep Compass North 4X4, Sunburst Orange

Everyday as a child i used to pray to God to give me a jeep. After a couple of years i realized that God did not work that way. So i stole a jeep and asked for HIS forgiveness

Hey all
New as i said in a prior thread-the info so far here is awesome! Everything I've been tearing through the internet for I have found in different threads. Drove my 08 Compass
4x4 cvt, burnt orange, auto start
through snow for the first time this month, like a hot knife through butter. Love it so far except the cvt-getting it checked though because the way mine drives and the feedback here are two different things.
Out of Rhode Island, shoot pool, spend a lot of time with my son, family and friends. I also own a 95 Cutlass convertible I tool around in and on whenever I can.

Got on a good deal 2 weeks ago. It's a gold/khaki/beige(?) 2008 limited 4x4. 28k miles on it.

Good: leather, satellite radio, GPS, sunroof, parking sensors, etc. Engine runs really quiet (better than our new Grand caravan). No sunroof leak.

Bad: Seat doesn't have a recliner handle and it doesn't recline with new handle (something's broken inside seat, dealer is ordering new piece). Interior with several scratches due to wear and tear (I can tell previous owner had a big dog and was a smoker - got rid of smoke smell through ozone treatment).

yeah, the 'bad' part is basically wear and tear anyway.

I think that you can only get the limited with the cvt, but I may be mistaken. Congrats on the Compass, you picked your color well lol, and its khaki

It's CVT. But it was on purpose - I know how to drive manual but I'm lazy and I need my coffee while driving

Howdy Gang! I just got a 2008 Compass in great condition. So far, I love it! It's got everything I need including the neat LED flashlight! I am looking forward to enjoying this unique vehicle as well as this website.

Welcome aboard.....Got any custom ideas for your Compass? The Rallye, IMO, is a pretty cool canvas for custom mods!

I am just adding a little chrome right now. I want to leave it mostly stock until it has at least 10,000 kms. At least that's the story I feed my wife!

Yeah, even with MDS the HEMI's can get a bit thirsty, but the Compass, IMO, is excellent on gas, and I have to agree, the styling on the Compass is awesome!

Only 30K on the clock? Wow, you got it mildly used at that, all the more miles for you to use!

Hi all,
New to the whole forum thing. Just purchased a red 2007 jeep compass used with 27,000 miles on it. Going from a 1985 jeep CJ7 w/ 350 under the hood to a 2.4l compass with cvt. Was looking for a manual but couldnt find anything in such great condition as this one and i know i seem a little crazy going from a cj to a compass but between gas mileage my wallet is thanking me and with the lift and old leaf springs and a rock solid ride to the beautiful smooth ride in my new compass my back is thanking me. Located down in Florida, originally from upstate NY, but should be moving somewhere by the end of the year which is why i got the 4x4 version and at this point couldnt be happier with my purchase. Came with K&N filter already installed. It came with the 6 cd changer stereo in it and sounds great i think personally. Dont know what i plan to do with it yet but i know something will be done even tho it is a great jeep in stock form! Hope to get some good info and meet some great friends and be of help when i can!

BTW nice saints win tonight for you Louisiana natives...even from a panthers fan.
