As of late last month (March), my wife and I are proud owners of a brand new 2011 Jeep Compass Sport! It is the first jeep that either of us has ever had the pleasure of owning. Neither of us are off-roaders or adventurer's of the sort, but we have always liked the Jeep brand and especially the styling of the new Compass.
We previously owned 2 vehicles, a 2007 Ford Focus SES and 2007 Ford Escape XLS. We were going to trade both in for a newer Escape, but the local lot was also a Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep dealership where the new Compass caught our eye (as did the commercials). We loved it and chose it as our family vehicle.
Now, I realize that many think it is a mini-me Grand Cherokee, and it is in some aspects, but we love the style without having the larger frame to drive. It has been a terrific vehicle from the start, great handling, comfortable ride, great interior, and good-looking stance. I would highly recommend the new Compass.
I have a few goals in mind in joining this website. I love customizing looks (particularly lighting, ie LED's), adding performance and efficiency, and not only learning from other members on the forum, but also interjecting some of what I learn to help others.
I am very excited to be a part of this forum and hope to learn some things as I go. I hope everyone is having a good day and thank you all for setting up a great resource for those that have chosen the right direction...the Jeep Compass!
