Don't be influenced by others. You know what you want better than they do. I drove many vehicles and ignored what Consumer Reports and others said; I went by what I knew and learned on my own. My 2014 Compass is the perfect combination for my wife and me. It is compact, roomy, versatile, economical, comfortable, hauls lots of stuff, and will tow my boat. I know a neighbor who put 200,000 miles on his. Chrysler products have held up better for me than others. My Compass will haul grandkids, dogs, fishing tackle, garden supplies, etc, in comfort- more comfort than a friend's expensive Mercedes with hard leather seats and a huge bill just to change the oil (no kidding, M-B required him to do a $600 annual "routine" service.) My daughter had a BMW that constantly needed repairs- imagine what they soaked her for those! A lot of the Compass is based on the Dodge Caliber- there are thousands of those still on the road and they have worked the bugs out. Relax; you made a good choice.
