New in Michigan, X2.

New member here in the great white north... My wife and I both had high mileage vehicles, so we took a leap of faith (after quite a bit of research) and bought TWO 2018 Jeep Compasses.
Both are Latitude 4x4s with the preferred equipment group, both have the cold weather package. Hers has the full length moonroof, while I opted for the upgraded rims. She's sporting the granite Crystal paint, and I (after bouncing all over the dealership lot for an hour... Lol) decided on laser blue pearl. We've owned them since 2/27, and couldn't be happier!
I'm glad to have found this group, I'm sure I'll have tons of questions in the future. (I've already got a few. Lol)

I'll be looking for you, Mccain... Have yet to see any Compass Trailhawks on the road, you should be easy to spot. I was surprised to see several Michigan folks here though!

This is awesome, now we have somebody who can test TWO compasses when people think they have discovered a bug or gremlin and they are trying to figure out if they all do it or just theirs =P

Welcome!

Funny thing is, when the wife and I bought our Compasses, my dealership had about a dozen on the lot. I drove through two weeks later and only two more had been sold since we bought ours. I was doubting anyone was buying them around here!

Welcome! Nice to meet you.

Suggestion: You might get a welcome from more people if you start your own thread.
Lucky I found you down here on someone else's thread that's almost a year old.
