Hello from Pittsburgh

Hi! I just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I just picked up my new 2018 Jeep Compass Limited in Pearl white with black top. Added features being the Safety and Security Group. So far I love it. Such a smooth ride and so fun to drive!! I look forward to reading through the threads and learning more about my new Compass.

welcome to the forum.
what other cars were you looking into before coming over to the compass?
Keep us posted on how things go.

Prior to the Compass i had a 2014 Buick Encore - Convenience level. It was a nice car, however was only purchased because my previous car (2012 Jeep Liberty) did not fit into my garage at my new house, it was too tall and i wanted to be able to utilize the garage. The Liberty was my favorite car i've ever owned to that point. I guess you can say i settled with the Encore, even though i did end up loving that little SUV all the same.

I wasn't really looking at anything else when considering the Compass, since i didn't really need to get a new car, so i had time to wait for the exact color and features that i wanted to come into a local dealership. When it finally came in, i went and traded in the Encore and bought the Compass. Simple as that.

After having the Compass for a small amount of time, i can say the only thing that bothers me about it is the start/stop feature and that it turns on with each startup. Its quite an annoying feature to need to be manually shut off all the time (though i do understand the supposed gas benefits and emissions benefits).

Welcome to the forum!

I hate how start/stop is becoming the norm and it sound so weird to hear everything go silent and then back on. May as well just give us a hybrid if fuel saving is all it's good for.

Hi! I'm another newbie from Pittsburgh. I got a 2017 Trailhawk in Rhino about six weeks ago.

I'll be watching the roads for your white Limited
