ONly some pickups are over-priced used. I have a habit of buying bricknosed Ford trucks on the cheap, putting a few hours worth of work and minimal money, then selling them at a small profit. I have one that I bought for my wife with the overall final price in mind...$3500...counting purchase, parts, and and paid labor I needed. I'm at $3100 now and have a hell of a mechanically fit truck that will get a roll-on paint job soon. It has 78,000 miles on it, and I only paid $600 for the truck originally. 1989 F250 4X4 that came with a 4" lift on it. I've already been offered $2000 over my total investment, and turned it down. It all depends on if you're willing to physically pay for it by wrenching on it yourself.
As for the Compass...buy new. You get a vehicle that has all those miles to drive before the warranty runs out.
***EDIT*** Mine is the 2.4L 4X4 with 6-speed Autostick. I'm just over 4000 miles on it, with about 75 of it being back road dirt and gravel. The 4X4 offers a lower gear ratio that give you much better control. I really enjoy the simplicity of operation...much better than the old style of getting out, locking the hubs, pulling the lever, rocking a bit from reverse to 1st to fully engage before being able to use it. LOL
