Jeep Compass Sport - Daily Driver & "Towd"

Just purchased a 2017 Compass as we lost our previous FIAT Abarth Towd (also known as an RV "toad" or "dinghy") when we inadvertently left it in gear while towing behind our motorhome causing the engine to seize and the tranny to explode. Not an expensive mistake to be repeated.

We could not source a used Abarth engine so this Compass, which had just been traded in at our dealer, came to us already fitted for flat towing with the same hardware as our Abarth so not a difficult choice. Only wish it was the next gen with 6 speed manual trans. Oh well, still a lucky find.

We spend summers in Coaldale Alberta and winters touring southern states with our Safari Trek motorhome.. We still have some hardware to be fitted to the Compass but should be fully ready to head south in October.

Looking forward to using this forum for all things Jeep Compass.

Sorry to hear about your Fiat.

However, welcome to the forum. I hope you and your Compass have a long happy relationship.
