new to the forums

Just picked up an 07 Compass for "the boss".
She had a 98 Rav4 which I sold on her..she found the Compass online, we took it for a test drive and picked it up Friday night.
It's a base model. 2.4 l 5 speed. No power windows, locks or cruise. Has a/c though which is all she wanted.
First impressions..it rides like your typical small suv with some louder then normal road noise. It handles better then the rav, is roomier inside (head room) and from what I read online, better fuel economy.
Anyway, looking forward to hanging out here and picking up tips, etc.

Tks jeepney. I am going to start snooping around it this week. Oil change, check the air filter, plugs,etc. The stealership said they went over it but I discovered a burned out tail light the day we brought it home so...
