Maybe you should check some Auto Sites Such as Edmonds.com on vehicle ratings, problems etc There are other sites as well of course JDPower I believe.
I can't say that was one of their better years and it likely have the CVT transmission which can be a money pit. The Compass used a TIPM which is not your typical Power Distribution box. Few relay and fuses as its mostly electronic. Few can trouble shoot the electronic when it goes wrong on these and the Chilton manual I have looked at online are almost useless as well. Mechanically its hard to get at pretty much everything escept for brakes. Alternators fail on these almost guaranteed. Mine did a few months back. If you looking for this model go for one still within warranty or new and have it fully covered. The 6 speed automatic will be a much safer bet with the 2.4L engine.
As for the used one the more miles it has the more likely you're goiing to have a key item fail as longevity is not proven on these vehicles. At least no the earlier years and some of the newer generation. Getting better but ... you takes your chances with it new. Especially without though testing/driving it and maintenance history.
