Hello from the great white north...

Already posted up asking a question but thought I'd introduce myself.

My name is Kathleen and I'm a addicted to Jeeps.

Just sold my lifted TJ...many years of modifications...off roading and love. Also had a Cherokee for many years also. Bought a 04 CRV for my DD, and the poor Jeep spent the majority of its time in the garage between work, foster kids etc, she got neglected...couldn't rationalize owning 3 vehicles anymore.

I cried my little heart out the day she was sold and drove away. No plans to get another Jeep. Within a day I was online looking at possible replacements. Initially I was looking at the Liberty CRD, as I do A LOT of driving, continued looking and found the Compass...better mileage than the CRD...less torque, but I can handle that. Bought a Compass off a 2 year lease, black Limited model. Loving it so far...only been three days, but I see a long relationship.

Any helpful hints, things to look out for, normal Jeep stuff...I'd love to know. I'm assuming "its a Jeepn thing, you wouldn't understand" is still true

Thanks and nice to meet you all!

Hi Kathleen
Welcome to the forum! One thing to watch out for is the tie rod ends. They have been known to wear out pretty quickly.

I'm not addicted, I can stop at any time. I just don't want to!

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

Thats OK, it's not harmful, and it won't make you go blind.
