Hi all,

Just waiting on my new 2011 2.4 CVT Limited Compass in black. Have about 10 more days to wait.

Currently have a stunning Alfa Romeo 159 ti in black but due to the family getting bigger, needing more space as a football coach and simply wanting something different I am now a Jeep owner. Cannot wait :) :wigglesmiley:

Welcome to the forum!

Waiting is a hard thing to do when it is something you are really looking forward to. Hope you can handle the wait because the Compass is well worth it! :)

Hope to hear more from you and get some pics. :spinning:

Welcome to the site!! Congrats on your new purchase.

Thanks for the welcome guys. I've a funny feeling you will be finding a lot more UK members arriving on here soon. The last compass was a massive flop in the UK when it was here 3 years ago and was soon withdrawn by Jeep. The new one is shooting out the dealers and whenever I've been there to look around or sign paperwork its been busy.

I think they might just have bought out the right car at the right time.

The 10 day wait is not too bad. Gives me time to say goodbye to my Alfa. :( Love this car.

I spent ages looking around to replace it. Tried all the "crossovers" currently on sale and none had any soul. All a bit boring and most didn't even match what I needed. One problem for me is that I can't have a diesel due to the short distances I drive and the Euro law that sticks a DPF on causing my engine to get clogged. But most small SUVs in the UK only come with either diesel or a very small petrol engine. Thankfully, just before I signed on the dotted line for another car the advert came on for the new Compass. Drove it the next day, took the family to see it the second day and signed the paperwork the 3rd! Very happy with my decision and I very pleased I have something that feels like a bit of soul.

I actually feel like I'm buying something I want, rather than something I need...which is great. :)

I understand that they are flying out of the dealerships all over the place like Canada and the US. Our local dealership we got ours from only ever has 2 or 3 on the lot at a time while they have tons of Wranglers and the others because they cannot move them!

Question... Do all of the Compass' in the UK have the projector headlights? I am wondering because I have seen those in some pictures and here in the US, we only have the regular reflector lenses, just like some of the the Grand Cherokees. I have a thread started where several of us have been talking about getting the projectors for our Compass' from the GC's because they look cooler and we could have dual HID's from the headlights and fogs. Would the UK projectors be the same as the US?

You know what, I don't know...how bad is that? To be honest, the spec sheets are really low on info and short of inspecting every inch of the showroom car its not easy to get answers. Mine should be here in a week. I'll let you know then.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your Compass! Sorry to hear you have to let the Alfa go, but I you won't be disappointed in the Compass and glad you found what you were looking for! Be sure to post some pics when you can, we'd love to see it and I hope you enjoy the site! :)

Welcome!

Just been in to sign the forms in advance of tomorrow and got to see my new Compass. It was in the workshop waiting for its clean. Parking sensors had been installed and it looked brilliant. If a little dusty with volcanic ash lol

I had a look today and it does appear that the Compass in the UK has HID lights.
