"Cash for Clunkers" = new 09 Compass
The Chrysler match on Cash for Clunkers took me over to the Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep dealership and specifically to the Calibers, Patriots, and Compasses. I personally liked all three and was curious what my wife would let me get. She really liked the Compass, so we went out to test drive the white 2.4L Sport-E. It took me until Tuesday night, but I decided I'd go for it - the only problem was everyone was selling out of all three vehicles! The Compass that fit my color requirements was silver, but was only the 2.0L engine (technically my other choice was a red 2.0L).
That would honestly be the only thing that I would change if I could go back and do it all over again - get the 2.4L! I really love the Compass and with the Auto Stick it can really go, not sure what all of the reviews are talking about. Sure I've debated the 4x4 or the Limited, but FWD is all I really need and any other expense would put it out of my price range - just not sure why they have a 2.0 and a 2.4 if it's a $200 difference on sticker.
I'm planning on picking up a Rallye spoiler, window vents, mud guards, and light tints for the time being. Eventually I will also pick up the Rallye body kit as well.
