< owner of a 99 GC limited Quadratrac II 4.7 with 190,000 miles (305,000km) The motor burns a quart or so every 1,000 miles (1,600km) and its seen two rears. I tow with it and for the most part do highway driving of around 80 mph 128kph. I can no longer stand the fuel consumption so am looking for a replacement.
I just drove a 2011 compass and a 07 compass and was about to pull the trigger on the 11 when i thought it was best to do some research on it.
After reading this thread and a few others I now am seriously reconsidering this platform all together.
I have a few questions for you guys, as far as the 11 goes;
What is the real towing capacity? The website says 3500, 2000, and 1500 all in one breath.
As far as the 07 goes whats the towing cap on it?
What about the Brake locking diff. What years and trim levels had this included?
Thanks for all your time!
Would you use your compass on sand such as found on the beach. I am referring to the soft stuff we get in N.J. that you can get stuck in easily.
My limited has never been "stuck" in this sand its taken me a bit to gain forward movement but have never been pulled out by another truck
I would like to continue this good luck with my next purchase.
